I have a 2002 X-Type. Just had this same problem.
A couple of months ago, I noticed that the break lights were always on, so I checked the pedal and the break light sensor was detached. I put it back in place (use a light, find the position to insert it, then turn 90 degrees and voila).
Then I had this problem of having the break lights on when I pressed the clutch pedal. After reading the previous post, I tried lifting the break pedal to see if the problem was solved and yes. So when I checked the break light sensor I noticed that the piece that attach it to the frame showed a little wear. And the pedal was moving for about 2 mm.
So I put tape on the pedal where the switch makes contact as to rise the contact area for 1.5 or 2 mm and that fixed the problem.

I have just bought a 54 plate x tyoe and I have the same problem. If I hold the brake pedal up and dip the clutch the brake lights do not come on so I assume it is a sensor issue. Did you ever get this problem resolved?
