I have just noticed in the past 2-3 weeks, I am getting a strange intermittent rattling/clanking sound too when I step on the clutch. Its doesnt always happen and i cant replicate it on demand. But when it does it, it sounds like either a bark chip rattling thru a fan blade, or almost like a nail in a coffee can (no not vanos bolt sound though). It happens when I depress the clutch pedal and then it just starts up for a few seconds. and I can feel a bit of vibration in the foot pedal and in the shift knob that coincides with the rattle.

took it to my indy, and of course due to murphys law, the sound did not occur when he had the car in his possesion. but he too thought it could be the TOB.
