My car started making a mild chirping/squeaking noise that I thought was a belt, but I noticed today that it stops when I rest my foot on the clutch. Just lightly pressing on it. The closest thread I could find in a search was from the "new gen" board. Someone mentioned that an adjustment might take care of it.
Has anyone had this problem with their EA82?:confused:

Mine did the exact same thing after it had a new clutch put in about 20,000 miles ago. It's the throwout bearing just barely making contact and turning a little bit. I screwed with this for a really long time before finally fixing it (well, making the noise stop at least, I suspect the root cause is still there and is probably improper lubrication). I ended up running the clutch cable tension quite loose and putting a stronger return spring on the clutch fork. That brings the TO bearing completely out of contact and stops the noise.

the throwout bearing is not supposed to ride on the pressure plate al the time, that is why a properly adjusted clutch cable and hill-holder (if equipped) is so important.
