    Hey, I have a 2000 Civic SiR Coupe. I have had it into the local Honda
    dealership 4 times for a squeeky/stiff moving clutch pedal. they have
    "lubbed" it everytime.. even when I insist that they just replace whatever
    needs to be replaced and get it over with. Now .. after all that the
    pedal doesn' t make a noise BUT when pressing it down (never on the up
    motion) in preperation to shifting up in the gears I get a viberation in the
    pedal/foot all the way to the floor. In traffic it can be quite anoying. ..
    :( seems it is related to the clutch having load on it cause it does not
    vibrate if the car is sitting still.

    I took it back in and the service manager took it for a spin just to tell me
    "everything is fine". I don't agree.

    Why should i feel anything if the clutch pedal isn't acually connected to
    the clutch plate.. cause if i am not mistaken this is a hydraulic clutch
    and there is just a pressure line from the pedal to the clutch plate/tranny

    any input ?

    Gee, it may sound like you have a faulty clutch press plate or bearing
    and they are both expensive. No, you should not feel anything when th
    clutch is down. You may feel jerks when the clutch is semi-connected
    but that actually is not your pedal, but the motion from car chassi
    propagated by the pedal
