Clunk when pushing clutch in at low speeds
 
04 S w/ 33k. Whenever I push the clutch in while moving slowly there is a noticeable clunk heard coming from the back of the car. Most notably in 1st and reverse. Car drives great otherwise. Is this normal or is something up? Maybe motor mount???

Possible motor mount (usually the front one), or one of the CV joints on the axles. Put it up in the air and have a look.

Will do. I read the only way to visually inspect the motor mount is to remove it. Is there a way to assess it without taking it off the car?

You can push the engine and see the forward mount move, and using a bore scope camera, you can see if it is torn without removing it.
