Default help! transmission noise

hello, I have a 01 pt. I've change the clutch like 1000 miles ago. and two weeks ago I've start hearing a ratling noise when I push the pedal clutch and it stops when I release the pedal. shifting and pedal feels good, no problem with that. some one had this problem before?. what could be the problem?

I was experiencing something very similar to what you've described here. It was a strange grinding noise that would only happen when id press the clutch down then release it. It sounded like it was coming from the mid engine closer to the passenger side.

It turns out a bolt had come loose and was grinding into the tank which holds freon.

Have you checked there?

I really don't know about PT Manual Transmissions, but with older cars, that noise used to indicate the "throw-out bearing" was just about throwed out.

Did you replace the throwout bearing when you replaced the clutch? I assume they still have a throwout bearing, of course ....
