THROW OUT BEARING RATTLE MISUBISHI GS\04

2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse • 12,700 miles

Souds comes from drive side centerline of car almost as though it coming from drivers side tire dut I think trans, when you take off it seems as though something is rattling around in the trans. The car shifts and pulls well, when you go thru the gears on the highway it goes away but when you decelrate the ugly rattliong noise comes back. Would it be the clutch disc spring(throw out bearing rattle), by any means its getting a lil' worse

Check to make sure nothing is loose on the exhaust system (heat shields / catalytic converter.) Usually, the TOB will make noise when you depress the clutch, not when released. However, that isn't the case all the time.
