Squeak-Like Sound Due To Manual Transmission Clutch Disc
2007 – 2008 (JK) Wrangler
NOTE: This bulletin applies to Wrangler vehicles equipped with a 3.8L engine and manual transmission (sales codes EGT and DEH respectively), built on or before June 5, 2008 (MDH 0605XX).
This bulletin involves the replacement of the manual transmission clutch disc.
The customer may experience a squeak-like sound from the transmission clutch. This sound will occur when there is a change in engine torque. The squeak-like sound can be heard most often during: clutch engagement, acceleration (tip-in), and/or deceleration maneuvers. This condition may be due to the clutch disc internal components.
