Did you ever find out what was causing the squeak and how to correct it?
I have been talking to the dealer for the last couple weeks (had issues with them because they were unable to diagnose what was wrong), and took the car to them yesterday. They told me that it was most likely the firewall welds.

I would take it to the dealer. It may be the firewall and if so then the dealer will repair it under warranty.

Before (4 weeks ago) the noise would come and go randomly. Now its there all the time and usually sounds the same. I drive everyday to work so the most it sits is overnight so its hard to tell

Now, these cars have had a problem with cracked firewalls causing a squeaky clutch. There are a lot of threads about that. I have checked for welds being cracked underneath my Windshield wiper cowl and they look fine.

The noise in the video is coming from under the intercooler. As you can see the Clutch Master Cylinder moves a little bit (but the noise is coming from under the intercooler). Any thoughts on this?
This sounds so similar to mine! A buddy and I tried to find if we could hear/see where the noise was coming from but were unsuccessful. It seemed to me like it was behind the intercooler. Like i said earlier, try taking it to the dealer and hopefully they can help.
