Default 01 Gasser knocking

My 01 DS gasser makes a knocking sound when taking off and under a load. It does not make the sound in maintenance mode on jack stands. Iím pretty sure Iíve narrowed it down to the driven clutch (one on rear diff). Here is a video of me wiggling the clutch and the noise it makes. Itís the exact noise as when being driven. Question for you other DS owners: Do yours make that noise? Mine didnít make it when we got it years ago. Also, I donít think itís a clutch rebuild issue. It sounds like the noise is inside the diff. Are there bearings where the clutch or yoke (if thatís what itís called) goes inside the diff? Any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated. TIA

For some reason I canít upload the video from my phone.

Videos have to be uploaded to another host like YouTube and then post a link here.

Canít see anything obvious in the pic but there are multiple points that can wear out in the secondary clutch and cause problems.
Make sure the bolt that holds it on the transmission shaft is not loose. Also remove the clutch and make sure the key stock is not worn.
It is common for the input shaft bearings in the trans to fail and they can cause some play in the shaft. Usually you get a very noticeable growling/whining noise from the trans when those are bad enough. With the clutch removed check the input shaft for up/down and in/out play.

Thanks for that info. There is a slight whine sometimes too. I will start with those suggestions.
