As mentioned above you can't go wrong with UUC!

It is well-known that BMW's original clutch arm bushings are the culprit for the annoying squeaking problem from your clutch pedal. You can lubricate or replace - but none of that typically works.

By simply replacing the stock bushings with the UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight polycetal) UUC Motorwerks Clutch Arm Bushings, you can permanently get rid of that annoying squeak and the side-slop.

The great advantage of UHMW over other materials is the superior long-term wear characteristics and self-lubricating properties.

An inexpensive way to keep your sanity.

Please let us know if you have any questions! Feel free to shoot me a PM or email.

Best,
Joe

The best way to track down the source is to grab a stethoscope, get underneath the car, and have a buddy press and release the clutch pedal slowly. Even then, it's difficult to track down the source.
Was it a SS line between the slave cylinder and the master cylinder?

I am having a new clutch installed and am in the process of replacing the clutch slave cylinder and getting a SS line between the slave and the master myself. Will this increase the problem?

Same here. I have a squeaking outside the car that happens when I press the clutch in. I went to my indy, clutch slave needs to be replaced. Luckily its rather inexpensive.

Yeah, it was the clutch SS line which stiffened the clutch pedal and transferred more sound from the pressure plate to the entire pedal assembly. After I took that SS line out and put the stock rubber line back in, the pedal lightened up and felt so much better.

I see no reason for a SS clutch line. You're just modulating some liquid through means of hydraulic lines. :shrug:

Did the clutch pedal feel stiffer?

Guessing you also had the SS brake lines, would you recommend them? Does it makes the brakes stiffer and more responsive?

The SS clutch line made the clutch pedal feel way stiffer.

The SS brake lines made the brakes feel stiffer and more responsive. I would definitely recommend them.

Thread revival!

Just wanted to say thanks.

Was just looking to see if I could fix the problem!

Just got an e36 m3 unmolested but needed updated of worn parts as the norm.

Thanks again!

Great Site!!
