2003 Mustang GT ticking coming from clutch

Hey guys, I have a 2003 Mustang GT. It has a stage 2 clutch and a short throw shifter. It just started making a ticking/rubbing sound that is coming from what sounds like the clutch/flywheel area. It is sometimes louder than other times. It does it whether the clutch is pushed in or let out when it is in neutral. When it is in gear it only does it when the clutch is pressed in. It stops when I start letting out on the clutch and the clutch starts to grab. The ticking gets faster if I rev the engine up. I can feel the vibration from it in the shifter too. I was just wondering if you guys may be able to give me some hints of what it might and how serious it may be before I go taking the transmission out of it. Thanks for all your help.

Mine does the same thing. Mine also when im when im setting still it also makes a moaning or whining noise. I was thinking it may be the throwout bearing or slave cylinder. How long has it since the Stage 2 clutch was put in?

I was kinda thinking the same thing. It sounds a lot like a bearing going out. I've never noticed it whinning though. I'll try to pay more attention. It's hard to hear some things. It's got SLP headers and full slp exhaust with resonators/no cats so it's pretty loud. Anyways, I just bought the car about 2k miles ago. The previous owner said the clutch had been put in about 11k miles ago. So 15k at the most. The car only has 68k mile on it.

Sounds like the TOB to me. My buddy just had the same thing happen to him and that's what was wrong. Had to take appart the transmision to fix it. That's the crap part.

Good luck fixing your car.

so what will happen if I just keep driving it? Am I risking tearing a lot of other stuff up if I don't fix it right away?

I was wondering that myself because it was extremely cold here last week and that is when it started. It's warmed up about 20 degrees from last week and it's still doing it but it's a lot quieter now. Although if that were the case then I think it would get quieter when the clutch and trans warmed up also.
