2014 Mustang GT Strange noise

Okay so I've had my 2014 GT for about a week and a half now and have put around 450 miles on it so far. Though around the 300 mile mark, I started hearing a small noise and I don't know if it is normal for this noise to occur or if anyone else has this noise happening. Sometimes when I shift 1-2 and then 2-3 I hear a click noise every time the clutch is engaged and then disengaged, but it only happens on those two shifts, not on 4,5, or 6. It doesn't happen every time I drive the car but often. It sounds like someone dropping a bolt into a metal bucket almost, its a hard noise to describe. I know these cars are loud and clunky to start off with but am I just worrying to much or should I take it to the dealer? Also to note the car is driving fine other than that small noise it is an amazing car.

It's normal, It's just the sound of the trans/clutch disengaging and re engaging.

wait until you start noticing the clunk noise the two piece drive shaft makes. Completely normal but sounds awful. I am getting a one piece driveshaft just to get rid of the clunk more so than the other benefits haha.

I know what this is. It's the sound of automobile jealousy. All the imports behind you die a little inside every time you shift and it makes a noise. By 4th 5th or 6th you're too far away from them to hear it.

It's on page 420 in the manual.

My 14 GT makes the same noise so i feel you on the over worrying! I'm more worries about the ticking coming from the pavement pounder in the front :/

Maybe i'm just getting use to the power (i get on it hard all the time) but i'm beginning to think i might have a little bit of power loss going on any ideas? I'd apologize for the thread jack but i think OPs question has been answered?

Anthony...I checked and I do not have this noise on my 2014 GT. Have 1004 miles and have not noticed any noises except the drive-shaft clunk when going slow. I doubt the noise is anything to worry about. Could it be the clicking of the solenoid for the starter / cruise control? I would mention it to the dealer at your next service.

There's always a little clunk when shifting. Gets noticeably louder when you install some control arms in the back.

solution: get some axlebacks and you'll never hear it again.

That explains why I've never heard it.

Hey, my car does this. At first I thought I was disengaging the clutch pedal to early, but then it did it several more times so I figured it was part of the tranny. Glad I found this.
