Rattle when engaging the clutch. Help
 
Hey everyone, how's it going? I just recently purchased my dream car several weeks ago, (02' JB M3 Vert) and I've noticed that when I'm barely moving in 1st gear and I go to engage the clutch (6MT), there is a fairly loud rattling noise that seems to be coming from somewhere in the front drivers side of the car. It seems to be much more frequent when I'm on a slight incline. Without hearing the noise, a friend of mine said he thinks it is the throw out bearing, however I wanted to get some opinions from people that actually own and drive these cars on a regular basis. I took a video from my phone while replicating the sound in my car and as soon as I can figure out how to upload the video on here I will do so. Thanks for the help and I'm glad to finally be a part of the BMW community.

I ended up adding the video to YouTube so here's the link.
Thanks

Can't see video. Rattling or more like a grinding when the clutch is fully engaged? Can you feel it in the clutch pedal? any difficulty in starting the vehicle related to the clutch?

That is normal...you will learn to use the throttle/clutch over time to prevent this from happening.

Same issue I had back when I bought my car 30k miles ago...I have had no clutch/throwout bearing issues. Every now and again this happens to me on hills and during parallel parking. Just drive the car some more.

For the record, car has 60k on the
Clock and I'm not certain if a clutch job has been performed or not. The clutch itself seems to be fine, it's not slipping or anything of that sort, just a really annoying rattle.

No, no grinding is taking place. Just a rattle. Try checking the video again. It should be working. There's also no issue with starting the vehicle clutch related or not.
