Squeaky Clutch Pedal ~ cracked firewall.
I would take it to the dealership. The 08 09's have a history of the firewall cracking where the master brake cylinder mounts to it.. Subaru of America has it logged as a "known issue". I guess they don't find it important enough to make it a recall.
To prevent it you could have put a master cylinder brace (grimmspeed works well). I would still install one after the firewall is re-welded.
You could do it yourself but you have to remove the entire dash to weld it in the correct spot.
