Good luck! You have something wrong in your clutch. Ford and many people here will try to tell you it is the T-O bearing, but that is not the main cause of the problem. Apparently, the problem arises from finger height variation on the clutch pressure plate. I had that same problem on my 00GT as well. The dealer replaced it with a Motorsports racing clutch, but that didn't fix the proble either.
When the clutch is pressed in, you will hear a squealing noise, and when the clutch is let out, you will hear a chirping noise (crickets, etc.). Am I right?
Before I sold the car, Ford said engineering was working on a solution. I don't know what if anything they came up with.
