When I press the clutch pedal, a rather loud groaning/squeeking noise (its a bit of both really) can be heard. Ive lubricated the pin/spring etc in the footwell with plenty of WD40, but it is still the same. Im planning on having an underbonnet look on friday, but does anybody know what in particular I should be looking for? Im thinking clutch cable. Cheers.

WD40 is hopeless for curing squeaks. A liberal blob of grease should solve it if it's the pedal mechanism.

Use a paint brush to work it in... unless it's the cable as dave says and order one asap (well, they don't cost a fortune and you'll probably need it one day!)

Had a look and it seems a pretty simple job. Got to look at the fan too, which isnt kicking in, and also the fact that its not getting up to normal temperature (about 90 degrees). Only time it does is when its sitting in a jam, in hot weather and the fan doesnt kick in.
