Question throwout bearing rattle?

Hi all: Is there anyone here who can definitley say that some occasional throwout bearing noise is a need for a complete clutch replacement? My 2003 SVT only has 13k miles. I know about the recalls etc. art in Ga.

Well, I thought there was someone on here who had the noise and didn't get it taken care of in time and his PP blew out, destroying his bellhousing.

I bitched and kicked and screamed at my Ford dealer and they replaced my clutch without the symptoms. I called it preventative maintenance. :)
