Noise coming from gear shift

Couple days ago noticed a sort of grinding noise coming from gear shift I'm thinking its my clutch release or throwout bearing was just wondering what was y'all's opinion was on this. I only hear it after I release my foot off the clutch when I put it in neutral. It's not hard to shift, gears aren't sticking or anything it's just simply a noise right now.

I had this happen on a 91GT I owned. Turned out to be a bad syncrho... Do you have an original stock quadrant in this car?

Ok as much as I hate bbk they had a video on how to remove my cable quadrant seems easy enough. Also I left awhile and came back home and it made no noise at all, I also noticed last night when I parked and took my foot off the clutch it made the noise, then I pressed the clutch back in and came off and it stopped. If that helps any..

Might just be a shot clutch cable/quadrant or one out of adjustment. If it is stock, you can grab it and yank up towards you and you should hear it click and self adjust.

I'd it isn't the clutch it sounds like a synchro going bad. I had a gentleman tell me once that he had that occur and it ended up actually being his rear differential gears. He said they worn out. Changed them and it never happened again. I have a 91 GT and mine does it right now. But not when u r pressing or releasing the clutch. More like after a take off, shifting into 2nd and 3rd gears. Sounds like a grinding noise. It happens when it is actually in gear and are starting to pick up rpm's.

I can't hear it in gear with rpms climbing my car is too loud...ill try to keep an ear out for it or use a friend to put their head close to it while I'm shifting. A female friend, a guy bobbing his head up and down in my car to someone passing by may seem a bit strange o.0

No doubt! Mine has loud exhaust but I can sometimes feel the grind in the stick but definitely can hear it too

Honestly I'd figure it out before you drive it some more. Every time you crunch that gear you are ****ing up the trans a little more. I mean if it is the trans that is shot whatever but if not... trans will wind up shot in addition to whatever is wrong.

Sounds like a synchro, my friend has a 3000gt that used to grind every time into 2nd, he kept driving it and it got worse and worse and ended up blowing up the whole tranny and the car wouldn't run so be careful

Yea after doing a bit more research I'm narrowing it down to synchros or just a worn clutch. So since everyone else is saying synchros ill start with that so what's the best approach for an amateur?

Synrhcos are a trans replacement or rebuild. For an amateur, watch a youtube video and read up on a trans pull/re-install. Its stupid easy on a fox. If you can drop the mid pipe you can get the trans out but you really should have a lift. While trans is out, you should do the clutch/flywheel/tob/pilot/fork as well. I can get you in contact with a really good rebuilder who can have a brand new rebuild WC T-5 on your doorstep for $750 shipped which is as good as it is going to get. The Clutch/flywheel/tob/pilot/fork is going to be another $300 or so.
