Default Loud squeak when I depress clutch

I was replacing my clutch pedal with the GSP one, but while I was doing it, I accidentally pressed on the clutch pedal while it was only half-installed so that the actuator wasn't compressing and the whole thing was moving, and then I heard a loud crack.

Now I hear a loud squeak from the front (not inside cabin). Does anyone know how to fix this?

Just to have a picture, here's what was moving. The only thing visible is the right half of the picture:

I don't really have any suggestions, but good luck with fixing whatever it is.

My guess is it's coming from a joint somewhere that actuates the throwout bearing. Other cars with a manual transmission seems to have the same problems.

Find it, lube it up with some high quality grease and it should be good.

IF the noise started with the replacement of the clutch pedal - it's something related to that installation. I seem to recall in another thread that someone did this and broke part of the clutch master cylinder. Was that you?

If the squeak is coming from outside its the clutch slave cylinder.

Or the clutch release fork pivot, or the clutch release bearing, or the pressure plate. They're all potential candidates... but in this case since this started when he installed a new clutch pedal, I'd still be looking at the pedal installation with a mechanic's stethoscope to track down where the noise is actually coming from.

+1...2 years ago I was having a similar issue with a sqweaking clutch pedal when it was engaged. took it to the dealer because I was still under warranty and they told me it was an issue with the pressure plate. I think it was loose. I would check the pressure plate. That crack you heard could have been something around the pressure plate.
