I just got a 2008 E90 M3 6MT and noticed that when cold and engine off depressing the clutch makes quite a bit of squeaking noise. Is it normal for the clutch to make some rubbing/squeaking noise when depressed? When does it become a mechanical concern? Are there bushings around the moving parts that naturally will have some swishing and squeaking sounds? Maybe it's a spring somewhere making the noise. The squeaky bit comes when the pedal is depressed about halfway and goes down in pitch and rises in pitch as I depress it further like a squeaky 3 hole punch. The squeaking seems to come from under the hood, as opposed coming from inside the cabin/clutch pedal. I would say I only notice my noise when the car is parked in the garage. Otherwise when the engine is on and I'm on the road, all those noises drown out the clutch squeak. I don't have much of a reference for clutch pedal noise. I have a newish Mazda 3 mt which is much newer (2014) and quieter, but even that squeaks a tiny bit and I actually had that pedal and master cylinder changed out for that reason. Do other people notice this with their cars? Thanks!
