Default Rsx-s squeaking clutch

Got a rsx-s, everytime i start to let go of the clutch, i hear a squealing/creeking sound. I can also feel it on my foot. Any ideas on how to solve this problem? its insanely annoying. Idk if that sound can be heard outside, but i know inside it can be heard and felt on my foot. thanks for any assistance

it doesnt really have the symptoms of a TOB. normally when its the tob, it squeals after the pedal has been let out all the way and then stops when the pedal is pushed in.
this sound only comes when the clutch is about halfway out.

try lubing it with some lithium grease...take off that panel thats under the steering column and spray on the clutch rod and there you go.. i'd spray it and press the clutch a few times and respray it again.
