Question Metallic Clicking sound when clutch pedal depressed

Hey there,

I've got a '99 RS w/ 110k+ miles, 50k on the clutch. Lately, when I depress the clutch pedal I feel a click through the pedal w/ a metallic click sound.

The sound is definitely coming from the transmission bell housing area, not the pedal itself. And it's not from the slave cylinder contacting the actuator.

The clutch still dis/engages fine, no slippage. And sometimes the sound goes away. It's usually only noticable when the car's warm.

Any ideas what it might be? I was thinking it could be the pressure plate or throw-out bearing? Maybe something w/ the actuator arm pivot area?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

If pedal fully depressed, it's your throw out bearing.

That's about when it clicks. From 4/5ths to fully depressed. How urgent a repair would changing the throw-out bearing be?

I hope it isn't what mine turned out to be. The sound you desribe is exactly what my WRX was doing. It got louder and louder of a 1 year period until finally something broke. My car has been sitting for the last 7 weeks waiting for me to get the cash togther for a new/used tranny or gears. Start saving your pennies now so you will have the new one BEFORE the old one gives.
