Question Clutch? 2000 7.3L

Recently I have noticed that my clutch has begun to squeak pretty loud when I push it in or release to shift gears. I can hear the squeaking under the hood of the truck. The squeaking is not only coming from inside the cab but somewhere under the hood also. I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips on how to eliminate this noise? Its pretty embarassing when the car next to me can hear the clutch squeak when I shift gears. THANKS!

sounds more like the throwout bearing for the clutch. The only way to eliminate it would be to replace it.

If in deed it is the throw out bearing you might as well, replace all clutch components. I say this because to replace the throw out bearing you have to take out the trans since the trans is out it would be a perfect time to replace everything in there.

not hard. if you don't have a lift or a trans jack the transfer case will throw the weight off but it is still doable on the ground.

I agree. Go ahead and do it all while you got the tranny out!
