Clutch clicking

My truck shifts fine and the clutch is fairly new but lately I have developed this clicking when I am taking my foot off the pedal. It seems the pedal has a tiny bit of play but so does the brake and gas. Any idea? It's inly when I am taking my foot totally off.

the nuts do tend to "back off" over time, i've seen it happen twice (after all they are just 2 nuts tightened to each other). the truck is, you need a "half wrench" (13mm) to get into the area properly and tighten. I cut a cheapie in half and keep it in my under-seat Garrison case.

Ah I will look. Just too lazy to put on my shoes.

So when this nut backs off you get a but of play at the top of the pedal? Clutch engages properly etc.

Yes, essentially there is a nut on the backside (towards the grill) that stays stationary, the "double-nut" is towards the firewall side...if they back off you'll get a little more play (since the rod now has more room to move between the front & back nuts). Now, there actually *should* be a little bit of freeplay actually built in (maybe a 1/4" or so, it state so in the manual as Jeff mentioned)....just don't snug them up tight thinking that's how it should be.

Thanks

I will take a look to see if that's it. Don't feel like screwing it up obviously

Bringing this back up. The clicking in my pedal is intermittent. My truck is in the shop for new belts and I asked the mechanic to fix it. He thinks it is a bushing in the pedal assembly. Is there such a bushing? I want to steer him in the right direction like a arm chair quarterback. It only happens when you take your foot fully off clutch or just press it slightly.

Thoughts?

I did message half shirt but this might be one of the rare times he isn't either on the board or on his computer.

It maybe the rubber boot on the clutch adjustment piston rod. White grease fixed it for me.

Thanks. I will check. My shop said they fixed it by removing play at the pedal. I got in the truck and it made noise. Only difference now is the pedal doesn't have a slight bit of play if you just touch it. Problem is I think it should have that play. Right now I have rage. Love my shop but nothing I hate more than being told something is fixed and having to go back. I only took it because I had to leave my lr4 because the thing has a vibration after they did control arm bushings.

Ready to ditch this shit and get a porsche

Barry,

If you feel any slipping at all stop driving. The free play in the pedal is critical and if pressure builds up the clutch slips it will burn up.

It actually felt like it was slipping in third. Just felt weird. Truck is going back to the shop this week. For now it is just sitting.
