    This is a poll to collate data how many 8th Generation accord owners feel their clutch pedal is noisy?

    Could owners make their views in this format.

    • When does the noise occur, i.e only in the morning, only after long periods of driving ?
    • Where on the pedal stroke does the noise occur, i.e half way on the downstroke or at the bottom of the upstroke ?
    • Describe the noise?

    Can you record some noise or even better you tube clips.

    Thanks

    If so please consult you local Honda dealer and get them to engage Honda for a replacement.

    8th Generation Clutch Pedal Creak

    I know its been a problem on the 7th, but has anyone had this on their 8th Generation?

    Mine's creaking at the bottom of it's travel. It's a 2012 I-DTEC btw, just turned 10K miles today.

    Now I know I'm getting on a bit, but it's definitely not my knee/ankle :nea:

    Looks like a trip to the dealer is in order...

    Re: 8th Generation Clutch Pedal Creak

    My advise would be don't attempt to fix it, let the dealer look at it and let them look at the shaft and noise to see if it warrants a complete change.

    If not they will lubricate and on the second occurrence they will replace it under warranty.

    Thanks, that's what I was planning, I'm aware of the fix from other threads :Thumbup:

    I don't recall hearing about it on the 8th is all.

    Hey Nevyn I did start this poll months back http://hondakarma.com/threads/122/

    can you describe the type and conditions of the creak? It may help in getting the attention of the dealer as you would have done your homework.

    2012 I-DTEC Saloon 10k miles

    Noise is a creak/squeek during the last inch or so at the bottom of the travel in either direction. Particularly noticable when inching along in traffic

    That is the first sign the CMC is showing wear, get it looked at ASAP and keep us posted.

    Not sure if I have this problem, but when I press the clutch there is a mechanical/whirring noise, this happens when on cold morning starts and then fades as the car gets warmer.

    It had it's first service this morning. I asked them to look at it and the result is the clutch master cylinder will be replaced under warranty. No quibble.

    Steven, this noise is a definite creak and only happens as the clutch pedal is moving. Hold it still and it doesn't creak. Your noise sounds more like the clutch release bearing. I wouldn't be alarmed unless it's really loud.
