i think i have the same problem on my mk4
ive just had the g/box done on mine i was told it needed a new drive shaft but the mot guy coudlnt find a problem with it he said it was either the front suspension struts (alough i just put them on there) or the track rod arm....

my noise it a tapping get louder to about 45 50 the quiter drop the clutch and i goes away or taking out of gear
hope this helps.
