    Default Jeep Clutch Sound



    My Jeep is a 2006 LJ 6 speed, 64k, original clutch. It is functioning fine, no slipping, full power, but when the pedal is not depressed it makes a sound like someone is sanding my skidplates lightly, sounds like wax-on. When I put the pedal in the noise stops 90%, but once my foot is off the pedal, in gear or not it comes back and continues when I'm driving. The change is only caused by the pedal and the only symptom is sound. The pedal feels fine too. I'm guessing it's my throwout bearing?

    Any advice is appreciated!

    Thanks!!

    It can't hurt to climb under there and look for anything that may be loose.

    It's a 2006, the warranty is over by a few years. It has low miles because (not trying to show off) I drive a 12 year old Taurus around during the day to keep miles off it. It's a magic car, it can make any man invisible to women. The Jeep has low miles, but they're all bad. I got it from a Hyundai dealer in Houston, Texas with 30k on it and 6k of warranty left a few years ago; I have no idea what the first 30 were like, but with me all it does is wheel and drive to places to wheel, and it's paid for so I'm not always as careful as I could be. I guess I already know I'm replacing the clutch. :(

    Any idea what a full clutch replacement on an 06 Wrangler costs? Any shop recommendations? Clutch brand recommendations? I will probably do it myself with NAPA parts, but I'm not excited about it, a good price would sway me. Found a great video about it:

    A reputable mechanic made me an offer I can't refuse, so labor is covered.

    What brand of clutch kit would you? As I understand it LUK is the OEM supplier?

    Just a thought, have you tried to make an adjustment to the clutch pedal? That might help, but in the long run as others have said, you likely need a clutch job.

    If the pedal is out of adjustment, the throwout bearing is going to be in contact with the pressure plate tines all the time, and will make it wear prematurely. Make sure it is adjusted correctly after it is done.

    Ive been reading up on this and apparently you don't resurface the flywheels on TJs / LJs and some other Jeeps when you change the clutch. I had never heard of that before, but two guys in this thread reference the FSM on it.

    Sounds like having a new flywheel on hand might be a good idea.

    Even though it is hydraulic, there should still be an adjustment on the pedal. If it is out of adjustment one direction, it can wear out the throwout bearing prematurely (most common). If it is out of adjustment the other direction the gears can be difficult to shift (less likely). The FSM should give the measurements for the pedal and how to adjust it.

    Will have to check the adjustment stuff.....
    Have not seen any thing under tha dash.....
    And a the slave cylinder has some room I think.

    The jeep fly wheel is very hard tinsel strenght.
    Most of they we bust the glazing with a good 36 grit pad and the grinder to get a good serfface again.

    I did a Google search a bit for clutch pedal adjustment. Every vehicle that I have owned that had a hydraulic clutch also had an adjustment on the pedal. Most of the results I found said there is no adjustment on the Jeep. I simply can't believe that. It is typically VERY hard to find the adjuster. It is located at the top of the pedal so high up under the dash that you might have to be upside down to see it. Here is a great photo showing it near the steering column on another car.

    The jeep use a solid rod....no adjustment up there.....
    Most of the new stuff is set up to self adjust.....stupid I know.
    Would prefer it to adjust.
    The clutch pucks are so dam thin now days. They want you to replace it every few years.
    I know some folks that are on the 3rd clutch in theres 04 w/120k on the clock.
    I have the factory clutch at 109k on it!
    But I float the shift when ever I can.

    Yeah, it appears to be different which is silly. A clutch that is not adjusted properly will eventually lead to premature failure. The best info that I could find was a schematic online of the clutch pedal system. IF there is an adjustment it is built in as part of the "captured bushing". That may rotate to make an adjustment, but does not seem likely based on the other info I saw.
