Is the noise actually coming from the pedal arm, or is it possibly coming from underneath, such as the pivot or fingers on the clutch fork.

You can inspect the clutch pivot easily enough by getting a light and looking at the welded on arm behind the clutch MS while someone works the pedal.

It's possible to get a little lube on the pivot where the pedal hangs by removing the two nuts at the top of the pedal box on the engine side of the firewall and the two lower nuts on the inside of the firewall then gently coaxing the footbox out a bit 'til you can spray some lithium or silicone based lube onto the pivot shaft near the ends. (the way the clutch arm is affixed to the shaft, the only place it can squeek is at the ends where the shaft passes through the footbox mount casting)

Go very gently if you take the above route as it's possible to damage the hydraulic hardlines if you get too carried away.


EDIT:

There I go typing slow again :D

Use not WD-40 for lubrication purposes lest ye destroy what you're trying to lube after it cleans off any residual lube that may have been there then dries up leaving nothing behind but metal on metal contact.
