2005 325i Transmission Rattle

In December, I replaced my clutch kit with a SPEC Stage 1 clutch and flywheel which included a new throwout bearing. About 2 months after the install, I started to get a rattle at idle but when I pressed the clutch in, the noise went away. Now that it's warmer here, I am using the A/C more often and it is much louder now. I have taken a video to show and hope someone can confirm what it might be. Here are the parts that were installed on my 5 speed.

Did you search on this forum first? I swear I have seen more than one thread on clutch lever/throwout bearing rattle on aftermarket clutches.

EDIT: I just Googled "clutch rattle e46fanatics" and found these.
