A squeeky clutch is a quick fix. Jack up the car at the front drivers side. Put your head under the car directly under the drivers door and get someone to press the clutch. You should hear where the squeeks are coming from. There's a linkage with a rubber boot (square type) which is whats causing the squeek. Peel back the rubber boot and spray some spray greese in. Push back on the boot and problem should be fixed! Worked for me! :mrgreen:

I also had the same problem and did this too, however this wasn't the case. the problem was the release bearing. i tried ignoring it and just turning up the radio :P but it also turned up it's speakers so i got tired of it and got it fixed :P new release bearing and all is now well :D

Yeah ur right dude! The spray greese only stopped the squeek for a while! Is there much involved in changing the release bearing?

not really...tried greasing it in the past also and it stopped for a few days, then started again. Clutch needed to be changed either ways so got it all changed and goodbye sounds.
