Hello I will help you with your question,
The way to get this noise stopped is to replace the master cylinder.
This is a fairly simple job taking about an hour and the part cost is about $60.
Since the lube didn't work replacing the master will.
Please let me know how I can help
Thank you

Replacing the master cylinder did not fix the very loud squeak. Any other ideas?
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Definitely seems like it is inside the cabin and not in the cylinder or other side of firewall.
Mechanic for Honda: George H., ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
You have lubed the bushings where the pedal pivots and replaced the clutch master. If it is only in the clutch then you will need to pull the pedal assembly to see what bushings need to be replaced. Swapping the whole assembly would be easier than trying to repair this one. IT is labor intensive to get it off the firewall. Please let me know how I can help Thank you

How many hours of mechanic time do you estimate for this pedal switch to a used part with good bushings?
Mechanic for Honda: George H., ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
There is no "book" time for this but I would expect at least 3 hours.
It would help if you can narrow down the location, if you can't localize the noise with a paper towel tube to your ear try laying your fingertip on the bracket and pedal as you make the noise. You should feel the vibrations and be able to home in on the source.
Please let me know what I can do to help
Thank you

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
