    clicking noise when letting out clutch?

    hello all, i have an 04 sti that i just recently purchased and i'm wondering if this sound is normal. when i engage the clutch and start moving i hear a clicking noise. it's usually just one click and doesen't seem to happen all the time (almost always happens in the morning when reversing out of drive way) nor does it seem to affect the performance of the car. i was wondering if any of you seasoned sti owners may have encountered this before? also the rear end seems noisy somtimes when i am going over bumps but i just had the rear strut tops replaced and i still feel like it's a little noisy. is that just the way the rear end sounds? any ideas would be great and thanks.

    With both my '05 Mustang GT and the '06 Civic I had, I heard a very faint clicking noise when I pressed in the clutch. I'm not sure what it is, but I assume it's normal. Is yours loud?

    Need more info. Only on cold starts? Where is the clicking coming from? Straight pavement or hilly?

    OP was about a year ago...but I'm having the same issue in my 03. Doesn't do it everytime. Right when I'm letting the clutch out and giving a little gas it clicks once and is done. I also seem to have a clicking noise on sharp turns at low speed. We just got a new parking garage at work and the sound is amplified now and is bugging me. I'm thinking cv joint for when I turn. But I get the clicking noise when releasing the clutch even when I'm not turning the wheel.
