Houston we have a problem.

We have just been out in our newly aquired 98 Z3 2.8 and had a good day, with one exception.

The clutch pedal has developed an annoying creak whenever depressed.

I tried to put some grease on it but it didn't seem to work.

Has anyone had this problem, and if so how did you fix it?

I was also suprised to see that the clutch pedal arm is plastic!!, maybe this is where the noise is coming from.

Thanks in advance,

Mark, Houston TX

This has happened to both of my BMWs and in each case the bushings in the clutch pedal had to be replaced. At first the dealer attempted to "lubercate" the problem away but it was not successful. THe cars' bushings were replaced under warantee.
