anybody else break these?

I've gone through 2 now in 2 years.

It's a little white plastic clip that's part of the ball & socket joint that connects the clutch pedal to the master cyl. When it breaks, I can still shift and drive, but it just makes a lot of racket.

Is it just me?

No, you are not the only one.

In my case they just replaced the whole clutch assembly (under warrenty).

Are you able to buy this clip seperately?

That happened in my 6.5. I think it was like $3 for the clip at the dealer.

As far as the creaking goes, I use a teflon dry lube to quite the noise.

I just had a piece of white plastic fall out from under my dash, assuming it is part of the same part you guys are discussing, is there any trick to replacing it?

It also seems like my pedal travels further up or maybe it is occasionally getting "caught" part way up from full travel and makes a loud clicking noise, is there pedal adustment or anything that should be done when replacing this "white" piece?

Thanks

Sounds like yours broke too. The trick to replacing it is to go under the hood and twist the clutch master cyl clockwise ~ 45 degrees to disconnect it from the firewall. After that, it's easy.
