    Hey, has anyone every had this problem? 2000 Civic SiR coupe (92,000km).
    the clutch pedal about half way up on the up motion starts feeling gritty,
    stiff and is noisy, and sometimes on the way back down 3/4 of the way and
    down to the bottom it does the same thing. I took it in and they "lubed"
    the linkage. Came back and took it in again and this time they just said
    "we lubed it". Came back again and this time the say "we repacked the
    bearing in the slave cylinder". I didn't know there was a bearing in the
    slave cylinder! Well guess what ... the same problem. I am not impressed
    and it is going back again for a 4th time! If anyone can help that
    would be cool.

    I've replaced quite a few clutches that were worn out that also fit
    your description. I always clean and lube the holder for the TO
    bearing and all the areas where contact occurs (fork, ball stud, etc)
    and the clutch feels "like new" when I'm done....probably because it
    IS new........

    Did they change the hydraulic (brake) fluid in the clutch line? That
    helped a buddy of mine with a similar problem in an Integra.
