My clutch pedal makes groaning noise when I operate it. It sounds sort of like a slide whistle but lower in pitch. I disconnected the rod and operated the pedal. No noise. When I put the rod back on the noise was gone but after a day it has came back.
I think it is the master cylinder. I don't see any sign of a leak around the rod. The pedal is pretty stiff to push and I could not push the rod in by hand when it was disconnected.
Has anyone seen this before or have any suggestions?
Also, the wavy washer is probably on the wrong side of the banjo. Can't remember which is the right side, but move it and try again.
I don't know how it's supposed to come from the factory, but the way I do it is to have the "wavy washer" between the banjo and the pedal and a thin flat washer between the banjo and the retaining pin.
I suspect the "noise" is coming from the nylon bearings in the pedal assembly which are either worn or in need of lubrication.
