Also rotate the rod 90 or 180 degrees - sometimes there is a spot where it clicks and another where it is smooth.: I bought a car with this sound once...- and I just figured the trans or clutch would crap out in a few days - but it was just the push rod to the release lever had NO lubrication on it - hence the "click / creak" noise!

: This is easy to see under car - it's a domed push rod that engages a cup indent in the lever that goes into the bell housing of the trans.

: swipe some good heavy bearing grease - and see if the sound goes away.

: Good Luck!
