It is NOT a grinding type sound. It is more like a rattle. The car can be driven and does not slip out of gear. Shifting takes place without any problem even into 1st. Reverse has a little grinding. The sound used ot occur intermittentantly,but now EVERY time the clutch pedal is depressed. The car has 200k miles. At 100k miles the clutch salve and master cyclinders were replaced. Could this be going out again?

    I would be leaning toward the clutch pressure plate and clutch disc having probs or the throwout bearing. Have inspected.

    I've seen the spring in the clutch disc fall out but it will most likely require the transmission to be removed to replace disc. pressure plate and release bearing.
