Use some good grease and preferably use a grase gun with a tube nozzle. Take off our intercooler then located the throw out fork. It has that small spring hooked to it and is practically right next to the clutch master cyclinder. There's a rubber boot that protects the fork; just pop that off and look down the hole and you will see where the fork pivots on the throw out pin. Where the fork pivots is where you must grease her up. Then bammo, sweak be gone... well for me that was where the clutch creak was located. If you can't do that then you must pull the starter to get access to the pivot pin. PM me if you have questions about how to remove the pin. Good luck!

Does anyone have pictures of what to grease on the fork? I found the slave cylinder but I'm not sure how to grease the fork without dropping **** on the clutch.

Is this thread still alive? I've greased the pivot point on my 05 STi and the squeak is less but still there. There is a grease nipple located about 2 inches from the rubber boot? It looks like an obvious place to apply some grease but it's not mentioned in any of the threads that discuss the infamous clutch squeak below the intercooler.

it's not a grease fitting

Disassemble to grease. Remove starter and , remove pivot pin. Clean and grease it - takes almost none.

Sure some of you aren't firewall years?

IMHO, to justify its' price, the S209 needs to perform at least as well as my moderately powered 05 built beater, and even that might not convince me to buy one cause my next STI isn't likely to be moderately powered.

I'm putting IAG back in here. Engine wise the car hase been trouble free for 56K. My STI is nearing the 60K minimum JJ led meto expect from a 2618 piston equipped block and it's still running strong.

Thanks mheyman. We managed to cure the squeak without removing the starter - just greased what was accessible. What a relief - should have done this years ago. Next project is to try and stop the damned trunk lid squeak!
