Clutch Pedal Squeaky
 
Sounds like the pedal pivot area, spring? needs a little lubrication. It squeaks upon release of the pedal. I blindly sprayed WD-40 up the pedal, but I could not see where the WD-40 landed.

There's a white nylon/plastic bushing around the clutch pedal pivot pin. If you remove the plastic cover above the pedals to expose the pedal pivot points, use the wand that comes with the WD40 to direct the spray onto the pivot point. Work the pedal while spraying it. Put some rags on the floor to catch the drips. It's a little messy and may take a couple of applications but eventually it will quiet down. I plan to replace the bushing when it's clutch time in a few thousand mi

Thanks, I'll try that, maybe later, but first more blind spraying with a rag to catch the drips. :D
