Rattling noise in neutral with clutch.

(2010 Volkswagen Jetta)
Have a manual, 120k, and in neutral when releasing or pushing clutch, the engine makes a jackhammer noise, only when right in the middle of pressing the clutch. Once the clutch is completely pushed down or completely released there is no sound. The engine does not make any unsettling sounds when shifting and accelerating with engine.

We work on a ton of these. My guess is it has to do with the throw out bearing, the TDI's vibrate a ton so it could also be a mount but I would bet it's clutch/bearing related.

It sounds like the clutch and or the flywheel are failing, we would really need to test drive the vehicle to be sure. Thanks Alan.
