Either the clutch plates don't have sufficient clearance when the clutch pedal is pressed or they do have the clearance but are failing to separate.

Air in the hydraulic system, worn or maladjusted linkage or cable are the common causes of the first and oil/grease contamination or rusty splines the second scenario.
A failing clutch pilot bearing, if fitted, could also the symptom.

brake pads from other manufacturers ( Ferrodo and bendix) will fit
modern master cylinders have a special finish in the cylinder so reconditioning and new rubbers are generally not advisable
the best fix is a new replacement master cylinder and they are available at any professional brake and clutch shop

Be sure you have changed the break oil completely. Otherwise drain the hydraulic system and renew with correct type of oil. If you have a ABS system you have to check that also.

It isn't typical for the parking lights to be controlled by a relay. These are mostly wired directly from the main lighting switch via a fuse unless it is a multiplexed computer controlled system. If so the Haynes wiring diagram will be needed for deeper investigation.

I suggest you begin by checking the fuses.

Bad fuel pressure regulator maybe. When engine is fully warmed up, pull the vacuum line off the FPR and see if there is any petrol in the line. If so you just found the problem. Try starting a hot engine with the vacuum line detached. If it fires right up you just confirmed the problem with the FPR.

The fuel filter is under the hood. See the photo.
