Ive noticed a popping noise when pressing in the clutch, especially when taking a gear up to 3500+ RPM. I dont think its the sound of axle ping because ive played around with it a little...<p>When i am driving fast(errrr than normal human beings) i find that the clutch makes a popping noise when i press the pedal to dis-engage. But i also tried completely removing my foot off the accelerator pedal before pressing in the clutch and it doesnt make the noise. <p>Could this be something with my clutch or just something with the way i was driving? I noticed it also when my friend was driving the car. <p>This could be a really dumb question but ive searched and the only thing i could find is axle ping.<p><br>Thanks for your input guys.

Are you feeling it in the pedal or is it solely audible?

FEO - THANK YOU! That definitely puts my mind to ease now. It really does sound like an almost backfire...so reading that post definitely settles some concerns, esp since mine is an 04.<p><br>As always - Thanks guys!
