So shortly after bringing her home, I started noticed that the car makes this clicking noise when I am shifting gears. It seems to happen after I de-press the clutch pedal and push on the gas. It also seems to stop doing this after the car has been driven for a bit and has warmed up to a normal operating temperature.

Has anyone noticed this on their ST? Does this sound normal? I never noticed this in my 2000 SE Sedan so I am wondering if its something I am doing or if everyone hears this from their ST.
FWIW, I have the same issue on the Focus SE HB with my 5MT. Goes away when the car is warmed. If it exists on both models, perhaps it's something shared by both models in the drivetrain.
