The most common faults causing knocking on these cars is usually the flywheel. If you apply the clutch slowly you may notice a difference in the noise, and likely feel the knock/vibration through the pedal. Gearbox will need to be removed and flywheel checked for excess play unfortunately. If you would like to supply me with an audible recording of it to confirm please feel free? Best regards
