Tried there, but the noise is definitely coming from the under the hood

It's tricky to do, but I get a long bendy straw and fish it down into the hole for the release arm and spray white lithium grease in the straw and it flows down and gets on the pivot. Pump the pedal a few times and the squeak goes away.
You bend the straw only about 15 degrees. Stick the straw in behind the release fork and let the groove shape of the fork guide the straw down about 5-6". Then stick the smaller straw on the grease can nozzle into the end of the bendy straw and spray a couple shots down there.

Thank you- Is the release fork the arm that is moved by the shaft at the end of the slave cylinder? I assume I would just need to remove the rubber plug that sounds it to be able to put the straw down there. What brand a lithium grease spray do you recommend?

You may then be able to look down and see the pivot stud.
Be sure that it sprays only in the back of the fork. If it sprays everywhere it may get on the clutch disc and make it slip.
Any brand of white lithium grease should do. Walmart usually has it pretty cheap in their Supertech brand. I've used the Walmart stuff for a few years on various things and it works just as well as any other brand.

Thank you- Have to pick up some of the Lithium grease. Definitely don't want to mess with the hydraulic line to the slave cylinder as I decided to bleed it out this past weekend and had to pull the master cylinder away from the firewall before the rod would clear the port in the master cylinder to allow air and fluid to bleed out.

I tried the lithium grease. I didn't have a bendy straw, so I used an old piece of vacuum hose. I stuck the hose down until it hit the pivot joint on the release fork I squirted some of the grease down the hose until it came out the bottom. Afte rthart tried the clutch and it's been quiet so far. Thank you for your help.
