When the clutch pedal is depressed, I get a squeaking noise. It happens when the car has been driven a while. I'm guessing it's some kind of lubrication problem. I doubt that it could be a problem with the clutch itself as the car has very low mileage.
Do you
have the same problem?

Does the squeak occur once or is it a more consistent squeaking? Can you isolate where the noise is coming from ie under dashboard or outside the vehicle? Is it something you can duplicate while the vehicle is running at idle or does the vehicle need to be in motion to create the squeak. Answer these questions and get back to me.

The squeak appears to be coming from under the hood. It does not happen when the car is cold. Once it does start happening the squeak will appear regardless if the car is in motion or at idle or even if the car is not running, just depress the clutch pedal a bit and one can hear the squeak. It is just an annoyance as the car runs fine.

It looks like the noise is only related to the clutch system. My first guess would be a lack of lubrication at the slave cylinder rod where it contacts the clutch fork. The slave cylinder is attached to the bell housing on the transmission. Disconnect the 2 bolts attaching the slave cylinder to the bell housing and lube the tip of the rod touching the clutch fork. If that doesn't correct the noise it will most likely be internal to the transmission. Let me know what you find or if you have any more questions. TY
