Hi, I'm not sure if this is something to be worried about, but just wanted to ask. I have recently purchased a 1988 M3 and have noticed that their is a slight (not loud, but noticible) rattling noise that sounds like its coming from the engine. This is only noticible at idle, and goes away if I push down the clutch pedal.

Any ideas?

I had this noise for a while, which got really bad over a couple of weeks. When I had the box removed and rebuilt the Layshaft bearing had completely split with all the bearings in the bottom of the box.
