Default Annoying, clicking clutch 2012 Speed3

Not sure if anyone else has had this problem, but I've been plagued by an annoying popping/clicking sound when depressing the clutch for the past 3 years. I tried using lithium grease on the contacts and return spring on the clutch pedal a couple years ago to no avail. Today I decided enough was enough. I spent about an hour on my back fucking around under the dash and I found out what was causing it.

There is a plastic rod that goes that clips into the pedal and goes into the floor board which I assume goes into the master cylinder. I found that when I pressed the clutch almost to the floor, the clip on the rod was clicking against the pedal. I shoved a thin screw driver in the hole and it stopped. Anyway this is a total ghetto fix but I put a small screw I had in the hole and now it does not click anymore. Hard to explain but I have a couple pics. The prevents the plastic from popping around in the seating.

Figured I'd post in case anyone else has this annoying clicking clutch. There are no problems with the clutch and it is the original with 102k miles. Close up pic came out shitty but should help you see where the screw is located in the first pic.
