    Strange clutch noise

    I know there is another thread about a clutch problem but mine is slightly different. Basically, today when I got home from work and turned the engine off, when I pressed the clutch pedal down it made a sort of creaking noise. I tried pressing it again and again and it does it eveytime, both when you press the clutch down and when you release it allowing it back up. The clutch still seems to be working fine, but this noise is rather annoying me (although I should add that it is not that loud as I didn't notice it until the engine stopped). It definately didn't do it when I fitted new TT pedals the last week, so its only just started. Any ideas? By the way my car is a 1998 1.8 T Sport with 56,000 miles on the clock.
    Cheers

    On my car the push rod of the master cylinder at the pedal creaked. Rather annoying. Lubed several times, but it just kept returning. Ended up swapping the clutch master cyl for a new one. Only took an hour to do + bleeding time.

    Strange, I got in it today and nothing, it was back to its normal silent self. I had just returned from a 50 mile journey last time, don't know if that might have anything to do with it?
