    Clutch creaking noise

    Lately I've been having some problems in the bracket area. Found the problem that was causing a "popping" noise after depressing the clutch pedal to the floor then releasing about an inch. Just needed some white lithium.
    Now after i brought my girlriend to work this morning it sounds like an old wooden door "creaking" coming from under the hood somewhere, and not the braket area anymore. Can't pinpoint exactly where but if anyone here has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated. My guess is it's the master cylinder or slave cylinder.

    take off the lower dash panel and shoot all the brackets down with silicone lube. I had to do this recently. There's just enough flex in the brackets that they rub when depressing the clutch. Its only slight but makes a load of noise once they get some age on them. It was driving me crazy. So far no more creaking after the silicone..

    That's actually what I just did. The first noise was coming from the bracket moving up and down on a bolt just above the gas pedal area. This time I just soaked everything i could reach with the white lithium and so far it's gone.
    I have a 09. Bought it used from the dealer I work at. You can tell the last owners beat the hell out of the car just by the way the shift forks feel when shifting. Plus they put an aftermarket clutch in I'm sure. It has a pretty heavy pressure plate, compared to a co worker's bugeye. I figure a heavier pressure plate is adding more wear on the bracket as well.
