GT - Couple of Squeaks Need Sorting


Got a couple of squeaks in the car that need addressing and wondered if anyone had any tips etc?

1st - The clutch pedal squeaks when released, I'm 99.9% sure it's the hinge in the pedal box. (Had a new clutch late last year). How can I access it best to lubricate it and what oil/lubricant should I use?

2nd - There is sometimes a squeak/slight rattle that appears to be coming from the air vents on top of the dash. It's the group of them above the central facia and not the long air vents at the base of the windscreen that do the de-misting.

Can these be eaily removed and refitted/adjusted in place etc? Tools?

Many thanks.

If you get on your hands and knees you will see a big spring that retrns the pedal. This can sometimes squeek. MAkes sure it is greased at the pivot ends and along the spring.

As for the dashboard squeak, I know this is a long shot but make sure its not your front suspension. When the rubber bushes on the wishbones start squeaking this can sound like its coming from the dashboard, and is a common replacement part.
