Bought my 2015 308 a fortnight ago. Love it but a couple of days ago I noticed the clutch creaks when I release it slowly. This is most noticeable when crawling in traffic and I am using the clutch a lot shifting between 1st and 2nd and using the Clutch to prevent stalling.

Here's a link to a recording of the noise - you can twice hear me push down the clutch pedal and then slowly release and that's when the creak comes in.


The noise appears to be coming from the clutch pedal itself rather than the engine.

I could:

a) Take it back to the car garage
b) Take it to a Peugeot dealer (should have a year's warranty left, right?)
c) Try and buy some silicone spray/grease to do myself.

What do you guys think?
Thanks.

iv had this problem since August last year with my 308 (2015). Highly annoying, and hard to drive when the problem is at its worse. Had it back numerous times, I think its up there with being at least 10 times now. Iv had new master cylinder, new springs on the pedal and all sorts. Been ok through winter now the weather is getting warm again it has come back. What I did was book it in at Peugeot, I got the heater blower on hot and directed down to the footwell. Got the problem creaking and feeling quite gritty then let them look at it. It's going back in next Thursday so some parts that were ordered. Apparently someone on here said it's now mentioned on the TSP at Peugeot so you could mention that too to them to help them sort it. Wouldn't surprise me if it becomes a recall as more and more people are saying similar things.

Just a thought - I had this same problem on a 1st Gen 308. Tried absolutely everything! Turned out to be the throwout bearing, and was diagnosed by a clutch specialist.

This is what he did - get the car hot so the problem is prevalent, get under the bonnet and push the slave cylinder and the fork thing it pushes (sorry, i'm NO mechanic!) inwards by hand a couple of times. If this makes the problem disappear, it's the bearing that's knackered.

As I said, I'm no mechanic! But this solved it for me, and a new clutch kit provided 40k more miles of happy motoring, after putting up this with problem for 12 months +

Just had mine serviced yesterday and told them mines creaking again they lubed it and today when it got warm it's back again great.
I HAS to be the right type of Oil or grease.. i know ptfe Oil works and told that grease should work to. Silicone dosent work either WD40. Mine had new clutch new pedal 2 slavecylinder, and it came back, boght a SW and it came back, :confused: lubed it with silicone and it clearly Got worse, Read about the ptfe tried that and its gone. There schould be A service bulltin about this issue.

Mine has just started doing this, sprayed it with PTFE ant it made no difference. I can see that spring, but can't get near it to put grease anywhere near.

DO you have Warenty.

I had succes with Ptfe and a long squirt, hitting the spring, laying flat on my back.

Yes, it's under warranty, but if I can cure it in 15 minutes it is far easier than taking it to the dealer and leaving it with them for half a day.

I can see the need for lying flat on your back. I'll try another squirt.

I bought a used Peugeot 308 and had the same problem today. It turns out that the problem is the hinge of the black plastic spring mount, where it connects to the housing of the pedal. I put some WD40 lithium grease on the hinges, and the problem is gone. The space is very tiny, so it is hard to make a good photo, here is the best I could do:
