    Mr.Hand I have been all over my car and all over the web, and cant find a hint of help on my issue. I read your write up on subaru manual transmission repair and you seem to be my best hope. I have a 2011 wrx, stock, OEM 5MT, and I replaced my clutch right at a year ago. I have babied it the entire time since, until about 6 months ago I hard launched. It went nowhere, bogged down, and crept away as if all the energy disappeared. Seemingly aince then, there has been a noise that sounds like a metallic knock, when I go forward on initial movement, or backward on initial movement. If I have momentum and decelerate in gear, the knock will recur every time i decelerate or accelerate. Any gear, even reverse….
    P.s., I Have not 100% eliminated the engine mounts as a possibility, but have replaced cv axels and HUBs

      I would start by checking the drive train parts to make sure nothing loose like a bad ujoint or something. I would lift the car in the air and have someone duplicate the noise while your underneath inspecting for the noise.
