    Pretty standard for a 306 the cables normally cause the notch feeling but over the years the release bearing catching on the input shaft sleeve and the release fork shaft (where it pivots in the bell housing ) cause the stiff feeling more so ,plenty of people have done clutches and cables and not lubed these points and still had bad feeling in the pedal.
    With the front speakers being RHF ( door opened the most) its most likely the wiring in the front door jam really common to split normally the window wiring but itís a weak point try opening and closing the door if it cuts out thatís it.

    Yes but remember to lube the pivot points and sliding bearing well if you have a bumpy feeling in the pedal may need a cable as well.

    And be careful of the fiddly auto adjusting cables, only release the mechanism once its fitted! Frontline do a cable for this. FKC189 frm memory,check your model is compatible.

    That multi wire connector at the door jam is a very poor design. My speaker went first, quickly followed by the window motor. I pulled it apart and re-wired it. It was a bugger of a job, finding enough new wire. I'm told there is a replacement part now, with unterminated wires.
