Smile clutch noise versus any problems??

Hi all: I have an 03 SVT with a bit less than 16k miles.(Bought new) I've had the dreaded throw- out bearing noise for a while. Everything works fine, no slippage or anything.. How many of you have just lived with the annoying rattle, and never had any problems? Car is never abused, is well taken care of.

I have that same noise since i bought the car over a year ago. I have no slipping either. I will just see what happens over time. I love my SVT and when the clutch goes I will fix it. I am still on the original clutch at 70,000 miles.

I have had mine for over 3 yrs. And the clutch and flywheel was first thing I changed. I can deal with the noise chatter in exchange for the better clutch engagment, not to mention faster reving.

Sometimes it isnt the clutch or bearing. I will take a pick of my bad engine so you know what it could be. I'll try to have it by monday.
