Default Noise from clutch/driveline just started

My 2005 Legacy GT MT just developed a rattle, or cricket/treefrog noise. I makes the noise when the car is moving, and when the clutch is fully engaged meaning the clutch pedal is not being depressed. If I depress it just slightly, just .5 inches, the noise goes away. The clutch is not engaging at all at that point. The clutch is operating just fine and has not been slipping, nor is it now. Any suggestions on what this is would be helpful! The car has 56,000 miles on it. Not sure of the age of the clutch. Would like to figure out what I am facing before I take it to the service center.

Ding ding ding.

The fact that when you put a nudge or pressure on the clutch pedal makes it stop is a dead giveaway to a noisy TOB.

A noisy TOB does not necessarily imply a bad TOB. You could potentially get 10s of thousands of miles on it without issue. On the other hand, sometimes a noisy TOB can develop into a bomb and vibrate and break into many parts and possibly kill your input shaft and pressure plate. So you just have to weigh the risk (granted the latter scenario is very rare).

If you really want to just get it fixed, it won't be cheap. $500+ on labor alone to replace a $30 bearing. If you pay that much labor, you mind as well do a clutch and pressure plate while they are in there.

I was wondering that too. Dealer I bought it from says they think the previous owner replaced the clutch before trade in (yeah right). I am inclined to get an estimate after my guy looks at it. What should the clutch and pressure plate run?
