I've had this car for little over a month and dealing with the same problem, when i press on my clutch pedal, it always squeaks. And after a month, it's getting really anoying.
I've tried just spraying some WD-40, but no luck. Is there anyway to fix this w/o buying new pedals?

it could be the power piston, that just provides pressure against your foot. or it could be the actual hinge. Try greasing the areas with something thicker than wd40, probly vasoline would work good.

the wd-40 may begin to smell pungent and funkify your cabin over time.

Technically you could spray as much of that stuff as you want wherever you want because WD-40 doesn't conduct electricity...I'm a huge nerd. I would stay away from something too thick because we all know what happens in cold weather with thick grease. I don't really think it would matter but it could get tough if it is freezing weather...maybe not.
