Not sure if it's from within the bell housing or the the engine or gearbox. It sounds like it could be the throwout bearing but when I push on the clutch there is no change in tone, so what else would make that rattle from within there? Or could the TOB be so shot that depressing the clutch wouldn't effect the sound?

Are there any aftermarket companies that sell the Clutch/TOB/Flywheel for the 95 Legend 6spd

OK one more, what's the purpose of the dual friction surface clutch&flywheel that some of us have?

Our 6 speeds have a dual mass sprung flywheel. This is really designed to take out the shock that exists when load is transfered from the engine to the trans (as the clutch disc aka friction disk is the medium between the flywheel and transmission shaft).

Constant rattle... could be your heat shields on your precats or the heat shields on the body by the precats. When they vibrate - often enough the sound can be mistaken for something really serious. I say this because you described the noise as a rattle.

Possibly your flywheel pilot bearing. It is constantly spinning.

Now if it was a chirp and it was repetitive - then I would start thinking about a warped flywheel.

I sure wish I could hear this for myself.

Probably the flywheel. The dual mass ones tend to clatter after many years, especially at first start nothing to really worry about.

Pilot bearing, completely forgot about that guy. And the rattling more at start up then at idle is defiantly a symptom. Too bad the flywheel costs $1K. But the pilot bearing is damb good culprit.

Regardless, I'll live with the rattle until the clutch goes, then maybe I'll change the fly and company.

Thanks for the super tips!!!
