Default Weird Clutch Nosie

So occasionally when I was stopped and in second gear I would be releasing the clutch and all of a sudden I would get a weird grinding/chatter sound. Now it is happening in first gear and second gear and is getting for frequent. Do I need a new clutch?

From your post it sounds like you are starting out in second gear and not first? This is very hard on the clutch and probably warped it. Does it slip?

It sounds like you are describing clutch chatter. If this is occuring when the pedal is being released, as you are pulling away from a stopped position?

As mentioned, starting in second gear is harder on the clutch as it requires you to slip it more than normal. This can cause greater heat and wear on the clutch. Have you noticed any evidence of slippage (rpm raising without the car gaining speed) in the upper gears?
