09 with what sounded like throwout bearing squeal???

Just got back from a trip to Colo springs. After the 8 hour drive out I parked the Heep and went sight seeing for a bit. When i came back and fired it up I noticed a chirp every now and then. popped the hood and looked around figuring it was the belt but it seemed more to come from bellhousing area. Also after taking off I noticed a rough pedal feel while pushing the clutch in and out. And possibly but may be in my head a rough clutch ingagement. Well I spent three days with some easy wheeling (didn wanna burn it up 8hrs from home) , sight seeing and the 8 hr drive back home I have no more chirping or rough pedal in and out ????? What da ya think the beginnings of bearing failure or possibly it has finally broken in,,,just hitting 6k miles ?????

There is a TSB and I had the same symptoms that you're having, but IIRC the TSB was for JK's built before like March2008 or something. Either way it MAY be covered under the factory 2year/20,000mile warranty.

If you ahve a mod/warranty friendly dealership within reach Id take it there. Also mine made a creaking sound when the clutch was pressed in, and the rattle if the pedal was all the way out that went away with slight pressure on the pedal. I had the service guy come out and listen to it while I was there so there was no chance of the "could not duplicate the problem" BS.

I have the same creeky door sound both in and out, it happens with or without engagement ( engine off in drive way or at red light out of gear).

I have a service appointment at a friendly dealership for that and teh hood latches, i will post up the outcome.
