Why do I get a Rattling noise from transmission when i release the clutch.

(1990 Volkswagen Vanagon)
When i release the clutch, at idle, after i drove a bit, there is rattling noise happening. It is not happening first start in the morning, nor after short distances. Its happening after a 15 minutes drive though and more and more. It goes from subtle to clear rattling. Its almost scary at some point. The transmission has been rebuilt by AA transaxle 2 month ago. I talked about it to theme but those guy seams to be so confident in there job that they don't hear me. they tell me its all about other places like muffler or else. Many people and a mechanic says the noise comes from the transaxle though. Its relatively easy to spot. Any insight would be welcome. Thank you very much.

Have you had the throw out bearing and the flywheel checked yet? Typically, that kind of rattle can be a sign of a component on its way out. With the engine cold (first starting and short trips) the vehicle will not get hot enough for components to expand and shift (not as loud of a rattle). In most circumstances, the shop that did the work should have you covered by a warranty, if you genuinely think that there is a problem, take it back to them and have them check it again and if they find nothing, make sure they put it in writing (your concern, diagnostics, and findings), if your still not happy with the findings, have a second opinion done, it might cost a diagnostics charge, but it could save you a lot of time and money (and possibly a break down!) if the rebuild is under warranty from your primary shop!
