Default need help

hey guys i just picked up 04 maxima se manual. The problem is that its making rattling noise when the clutch is not pressed in, but when i press it than the noise goes away. I was sure that its just the throwout bearing, but knowing my luck it might be something else. any suggestions or good mechanic suggestions would be appreciated. Im from NYC by the way.

here is a quick video with the same noise

Sounds like a 99 neon i had with 44k on it at the time. Mechanic said it was the throwout bearing. The car had a blown head gasket with 27k on it when i purchased it. Figured the clutch had been abused so it got replaced with a stage 2 clutch. The labor cost was the same either with or without the clutch replacement.

"The problem is that its making rattling noise when the clutch is not pressed in, but when i press it than the noise goes away."

So it's not the ThrowOut Bearing, if the throwout bearing was bad it would make more noise when the pedal is pressed down. Noise maybe transmission input shaft bearing
