    Could be the drive shaft.... had this problem on a clio years ago. When the clutch was pressed there was a rattling/grinding sound. Turns out the gaitor/boot had perioshed and leaked and the sound was due to no lubrication. HTH

    If you're not savvy with a spanner I'd run it along to your local garage. Just ask them to check the drive shaft for leaks. Hope you get it sorted
