Hello,
When I press the clutch pedal, there is an annoying squeaky noise made. See video attached - the car is turned off during the video. Subaru Forester 2009. Does it just need to be lubricated? How do I lubricate it? Thanks in advance.

There is a pivot point inside the bellhousing where the arm that the slave cylinder pushes on hinges. I suspect that that pivot point has dried up.

I've had that same issue, but found it didn't bother me too much while I was driving (and the engine was running) :)
I don't know if it's possible to squirt some lithium grease in the direction of that location without getting any on your clutch! You absolutely do NOT want to get any lubricant on the clutch itself.

Yep, likely just needs to be lubricated. Look under the dash and find where the pivot point is and apply some grease. Doesn't need much.

I was fereering to the pivol point in the bellhousing. On the clutch fork.

But it could also be the pin on the pedal.
