Mine started to make that nose and was fine for about 5000 miles. Then my throw out bearing ceased and it bent the the shaft and broke the housing. So my 2003 has a brand new tranny, up graded clutch. 93k on the original tranny.
The shop I took it to said the clutch was in decent shape before. Making me think the original owner replaced the clutch half assed and didn't replace the bearing.
So it might be "normal" noise but my new one doesn't make a sound.
