41 - definition is ‘somewhat hairy’
6d is a sounds like clue i think..
32 definition is US actress - and archaic Scottish word for sweetheart around the usual abbreviation for liberal
9 Your L and E first E are wrong.

41 Your two Us are wrong
14 .....regular letters from the answer to 17
9 LE is wrong at the beg

6d what do hinges do when they need oiling
16d abbrev for hour
32 Use the universal crossword solver with the letters you have...
You can now paddle your own canoe for 6d
Isn’t the first u in 41 correct?
16 An abbreviation (short) for 'time' , definition is a German wine valley.
41 your letters are CORRECT
3 letter word for local hostelry, anagram of rule inside 3 letter hospital dept
32 Jenny from the block. I'm not sure where the first letter comes from Scots though
Thanks, Toorak - I was scrolling up and down and looking at my grid... and messed up. Sorry, Matakari - but at least it's an easy puzzle this week. You might require help with the theme...
Ff - for 32 the first and last letter form an archaic Scottish word
Ah- got it now thanks Toorak.
I assumed the O came from love rather than the first two letters from sweetheart
9a a sounds like for the Latin word for king

Many thanks,Roslyn and others, sorry I messed up, too, there is no 9(A), I meant 19(A). For 6(D) I now have CREEKS and 32(D) UZO. Am I right. I am having a look at the other hints now. And I've got the theme, that's why I hinted that I was on the ball and batting well, Neveracrossword!
32d your ?LO is correct ...you just need the 1st letter
https://crossword-solver.org/%3F,LO ...you'll soon find the actress from that short list
Yes creeks is good
Matakari, my 'you might need help with the theme' was slightly tongue in cheek. I should have added a smiley face ... if I'd known how to do that! Glad all the hints helped.

Still somewhat in the dark with 14(A) ( A?? ) except my 4(D) is wrong: 4 Bard’s cave in western part of continent (5) (ANTRE ). For 19(A), I now have: 19 We’re told Roman king suffers ruin (6): W?E?KS
- A verification for 9(D) Ten teams sign new method of determining benefits (12, two words): ?E???TD?T?N? ( SECRET DATING )
- Thanks again for any further hints!
9d - secret dating is wrong - it’s an anagram of the first 3 words in the clue
19 look for the Latin word for king then a word that sounds like it and means suffers ruin
