stick shift NOISE

Hi all. i have a 2009 Versa w/manual transmission which i love. As of recent times (2-3 weeks) whenever I am shifting from 2nd to third to 4th i get a
'boxy vibration' after-noise that would last a couple of secs. Also when i am driving along at approx 40 mph(for example) , if i depress the clutch ill get that same brief fluttering noise. It doesn't affect the overall performance nor the shifting but it does seem to be getting more pronounced as time goes by. I'm thinking that mechanics here will know right away what this problem is. I would hate to think that this is an expensive fix (warranty is over) Thanks all

Hard to tell, but maybe a heat shield rattling? Does it happen consistenly at a certain rpm regardless of gear choice? Is it a high tinny rattly vibration or lower? My Altima does that occasionally at about 1200-1500 rpm.
If it is a lower shuddering vibration, it might be related to clutch engagement or something, but that's just guessing. How are your motor mounts? They flex a lot during clutch disengagement and engagment---another guess. Hope it helps a bit.

Blu- I never pay attention to the RPMs when shifting. I do shift properly though. the noise is getting much more pronounced now.
08versailles's-I certainly agree that it might be related to clutch engagement, as you have suggested.
I will be taking it in at our local 'PepBoys' for servicing. UNFORTUNATELY I believe the warranty is expired now...or is it? Got to check that asap!! Ill update soon. Thanks guys for your input.
