        there is no need for one specific car thread. a mazda thread is better which it will now be!

                  Also check your exhaust shields. Over time they can come loose and rattle.

                      Curious to know if any 3 owners have this issue.

                      Letting the clutch in, you get a spring type of creek, but only when your foot is about to release the pedal.  This happen even when thr car is turned off.  It doesn't seem to be consistent either.   Dealer has told me 3 time there is nothing thr tech could hear, but the sound come back every once in a while.

                      Thank!

                      Btw great idea on the thread

                        I get a faint clutch creak. Get a louder exhaust = fixed!

                            I have that problem too, I read that a stiffer rmm helps get rid of this, apparently it happens when real easing the clutch the engine move or something due to torque. But I noticed that letting the clutch out slowly helps get rid of it

                                how many k's are on the car? it might be the baffles to in the exhaust, but check the shields first

                                    i have the release bearing squealing all the time lol you can hear it at idle and the first inch of the clutch being depressed. damn thing is brand new! dont feel like dropping the trans again... also my trans is starting to grind like a bastard... any ideas? i was thinking its because of the release bearing :(

                                              Doing that would mean we have to have a Ford drivetrain.  F*&^ that.
