Default 2013 WRX Clutch 'Clunk' on engagment

Been having this issue for a few months now, it will only make this noise after about 20-30 minutes of normal city driving...

for example, I will drive the car across town and back, park it, turn the car off for 10 minutes , then next time I clutch in to start the car , the click/clunk will be there...

if I leave the car over night , sound will not be present in the morning, until aprox another 20-30 min of driving ...

Initially brought it to Subaru when It started ....

they 'diagnosed' it .. replaced the clutch pedal assembly and master cylinder under warranty ... 'Clunk' is still present ...

and with it being a intermittent thing , of course it never does it on the techs road tests ... I had left him with very clear paramiters under which it happens ... they couldn't replicate it ...

im also now getting a slight whine that goes away with the clutch depressed about 10% ..

any thoughts ideas ?

it has to be binding somewhere .. next step is to start replacing clutch/release bearing/fork ect.

Next Check the slave cylinder and clutch fork. It sounds like the fork is hitting something .

posted this in another thread, but thought I would follow up here aswell ....

it would only show up after casual driving for a hour or more periodically... even then , would only sometimes do it ...

After replacing a bunch of parts , my car no longer makes the noise ...

This is what was replaced under warranty by Subaru...

-Clutch master Cylinder
-Clutch and brake pedal assembly
-Clutch Slave cylinder

I also had the clutch replaced with an Exedy stg1 clutch disc, pressure plate , new flywheel , throw out bearing and pilot bearing.

oh , and a Group N Tranny mount

so anyone of those components remedied the noise.

my clutch pedal feel , and car in general has never felt so solid ..

hope this helps others dealing with a similar issue as to where to start looking..
