There are 2 noises that are characteristics of the manual transmission.

1- clutching in and out - produces a small rattle (detailed in the owners manual)

2 - in neutral at idle there is a continuous small knocking noise like 'dakadaka' (reminds me a little of the sound that Harley Davidson Bike's make) this stops when 1st gear is engaged.

I spent the last 2 weeks discussing these with a very senior tech when I had a new clutch and flywheel fitted.
