'97 Manual Transmission?

When idling, or even driving, you can hear what seems like loose gears spinning in my transmission. The Jeep still shifts fine though, I'm just wondering if this noise could end up being a problem, or of their is a fix for it?

Does it make the same noise while the clutch pushed in? Mine makes a hum noise... Even after being rebuilt... I think it's my throw out bearing touching the pressure plate due to a broken clip.

Yea, still makes the noise. As far as I know this noise came about only recently, so I'm not sure what the problem could be.
