My wifes 08 is making a squeaking sound that sounds like it is coming from the clutch. It is not the same as belt squeal .... more like bearings.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

You might check the grease on the bearing ramp inside the clutch. I always remove the orginal grease and re-grease with hi speed wheel bearing grease [synt.]. In order to check grease remove the belts, remove the bolt holding the clutch to arm, pull apart and you will see where the grease should be. When re-installing the clutch be sure to use loctite on the mounting bolt.

Have fun,
