Question Trans or clutch? A diagnosis please.

The Car: 1999 Legacy 2.5GT (STS) 5-Speed
Mileage: 68,xxx

The issue:

Say in the last month or so, there is an occasional feeling of brief grinding or metal on metal as I upshift from 2-3 or 3-4. Very very occasional, maybe 1 in 20 shifts for each change. I wonder if the clutch is not fully releasing even though the pedal is in and pedal feel is ok, or if there is an issue with the infamous glass tranny beginning to rear its ugly head. It happens after I have put in the clutch and am moving from one gear to the next, just at the end of the throw.

Time for Exedy clutch and lightened flywheel, or start saving for a transmission rebuild?

Here we go!
My 1997 Legacy 2.2 started doing that at around 80K, then it got worse....then it was 3rd and 4th gears, then the clutch was replaced and it was still there, maybe slightly more pronounced.

From all of my personal tests and varying shifting styles, etc., I came to the firm conclusion that it was worn synchros, not clutch. I could jam the clutch in and wait 2 full seconds before gingerly trying to slot it in gear and still got a crunch. I spent a lot of time by myself and with friends determining if the clutch was dragging and it was not.

Nevertheless, through double clutching I made the transmission live until I traded the car in at 145K.

Best of luck, with whatever you decide.
