Clutch pedal creaking/grinding/vibrating 09 XTR
#1
Sorry to post another clutch thread but I don't know if anyone's come across this before, it's not severe and it's not all the time but there's a definite grinding-creaking-vibrating sensation as I push the clutch pedal down about 3/4 of the time, could this be an indication of something serious or is it maybe just something that can be lubricated or something like that? It does seem to bit quite high and unforgivingly (?) but I don't know if this is how they're meant to be, I've only had it a week and I've not had one before or come across this in another car. Thanks for any light anyone can shed on this!

Hi All,
If the creaking etc. also happens with the engine off then, as Jed suggested, it's likely to be a cable problem. If the movement is 'jumpy' , with sticking points then the inner cable or outer cable liner are dry.  The cost of a new cable is low compared with the pain of it breaking in the middle of nowhere, so worth buying one and keeping it in the car for the AA man to fit. It's not worth taking out the old cable to lube it as replacement is simpler.
Alternatively if the problem only arises when the engine is running then it is likely to be the clutch release bearing, which could be in the throes of breaking up - the bearing housing may  be of plastic and that may have fractured. A lot more expensive as it's a gearbox out job and realistically the whole clutch assembly needs replacing at the same time.
Good luck!

Thanks oilyrag, I can't see Jed's post for some reason, maybe it'll appear later. It's not jumpy (yet!) but I might get the cable changed anyway to be safe, I don't want it breaking on me if I'm on my way to a job. I'll see if it does it when the engine's not running, that's a good point. I hope it doesn't need a whole new assembly, mind you it's still under warranty until June so if it's going to go I hope it does it before then!

Does the car have a cable clutch, I though most of them had a hydraulic clutch by 2009?

May depend on engine type though, not sure what engine you have?

B9 Berlingo only has a hydraulic clutch, so it's not the cable .
If the pedal vibrates, then there has to be something causing that i.e. The engine running.
This in turn means almost certainly that your thrust bearing will be chewing it's way through the clutch fingers, so a new clutch is imminent.
I would get it checked out , as if this is the case they tend to fail rapidly from this point.

Apologies for misleading re cable - a little knowledge and all that. Have a close look at your warranty as often wearing parts - brakes, clutch etc. are excluded. If you've only had it for a week then take it back to the dealer and ask them to fix it!

I'm not trying to be a smart arse here, but if everyone put their vehicle type, engine type etc,  in their signature it would be a great help with things like this ! 

I appreciate Figmeg does have some vehicle details in their signature.

I just noticed that when viewing the forum using Tapatalk the signatures are not visible.

Thanks everyone, serves me right for not even knowing if I had a cable or not!
Signature duly changed but I'll try & remember to put it in the message in future too if they're not always visible.
It doesn't look good then Sad  I'll contact the dealer on Monday. Kinda spoiled my weekend really! 
Thanks again Smile
