    Anyone else have a squeaky gas pedal?
    It's identical to a squeaky clutch on any Vauxhall cavalier. Press it down and it's quiet, let go and the mouse comes to life.
    I have some silicone grease that I'll happily plaster everywhere but is it common?

    The squeeky clutch on the diesel can be cured by new master cylinder, grease only work short term.

    Finally used silicone grease and it's nice and silent.
    I have a tube of this from my previous job and it's amazing.
