Good to know - can you tell us more about the brass inserts? Are these replacements for the pedal bushes?I was getting really fed up with the dreaded clutch pedal squeak. I contacted nestou and he helped me out with replacement brass washer inserts. I swapped the inserts but the squeak was still there. So, I gave the whole mechanism a bath in Ixtar Multilube as suggested by blustone. The squeak was still there but thought I would give it a few days before treating again. A couple of days later the squeak is now 100% gone, no need for a second treatment yet. Fingers crossed it lasts.
