147 clutch / gearbox? noise

I have 54000km on my 147. Recently I have been hearing a knocking noise when driving at lowish speeds. The knocking decreases in frequency the slower I drive.
Initially i thought it was suspension related (it sounds just like a broken cv joint), but last night i noticed that the noise goes away when i put in the clutch, or when i take the car out of gear. The noise is only there when the car is in motion.

The problem is intermittent, so the guys at the workshop may not get to hear it.

Has anyone experienced something similar? Any idea what it could be?

I would guess that guy has either sold his 147 or solved the problem.
I would check the front suspension and brakes to find the cause of the knocking.
