weird click when pushing or releasing clutch

So when i push in my clutch or release it. I get this odd click noise from down under...
Doesnt happen every time but about 80% of the time.
It still works great but i just noticed the click now that we had a day i could drive with my window down...

Any idea on wth it could be?

Hate to say but more than likely the throw out bearing has slipped from the retainer clips on the clutch fork or one of the tabs on the pressure plate is bent!!!

Ok so that doesnt sound like a good problem to have. How much to fix it?
And what can i look forward to as far as future problems?
I do have a power train warranty so i will have to see if this is covered.

Before opening your big wallet, or panicking - why not crawl under and look while someone operates the clutch? Then pull the stick out of it.

how bout you can drive it just fine with the throw out bearing going or gone yes it might be a little hard to shift at times but nothing you can live without.

I can drive my 97 tj no clutch all day long. There is so much slop and it is extremely easy to match up the gears. Now in my stang it was damn near impossible. Really for you to change the throw out bearing would be a few hours of work depending how well you know the way around the vehicle. I keep forgetting that I don't have to jack mine up to work on it like the stang. Jeep has 2 foot of ground clearance or more to the bottom and mustang had bout 4 inches!

well i know basic mechanics. No garage and limited tools. All my spendy tools are for gunsmithing.
The only thing making my wallet big is the dust that has built up inside it.

i had asked about it being hard to shift into first gear awhile back in a different thread and it was thought that it was syncros...
But im thinking that it might be a sympton of the throw out bearing.

I wouldnt even know where the hell to look to find it...lol
I promise as soon as i move and have a garage that i will rip into her like a kid on christmas...lol

I have to see if this would be covered under the power train warranty.

But i will see if i can get someone to operate the clutch while im under there and try and isolate the area its coming from.

Any one know what i should be looking for?... i will try and snap a pic of the area it is coming from also to help you guys out since i know its hard to try and figure something out from online.

u are yanking the tranny if you are replacing the throw out bearing......and my rule of thumb is that if im pulling the trann then im putting in a new clutch so i dont have to pull the tranny again for a while

Like flat said normally you change the clutch too depending on mileage. I bet you could change the throw out bearing in 2 hours with somebody helping you. If you were close I would say lets do it! IT is really easy.

I've had a little click in the clutch..intermittant..since I bought the jeep with 20k. Almost 50k now and it's never been an issue. Mine sounds like plastic crunching right near the floorboard. I looked a couple times,but couldn't see any likely culprits.
