It's likely to be the clutch pin making this clicking sound. It wears over time creating a grove that will eventually catch the clutch pedal and hold it down to the floor. There have been a few threads on this in the past.
Pain to crawl up under there to fix and most easily accomplished with the drivers seat out. There's a diagram of the clutch pedal assembly also on Paragons site which shows the the part in the assembly though it does not have a number associated with it. Here's a link to the part that gets worn and likely needs to be replaced. https://www.paragon-products.com/Clu...423.387.00.htm
Good luck.

An old post, but just some info for someone who may stumble upon this. My son's 944 turbo model had said click when you would push in the clutch. I puzzled over it for a long time and finally tracked it to a cracked firewall. The flexing of the crack made a click sound. It was the craziest thing.

There's a thread on here regarding a piece someone is making & selling that shores up the firewall, bracing it against the shock tower

Yep, I bought one and used it. It makes for a solid repair.

It is a good idea. The turbo models all seems to eventually crack. It is part of the 'joy" of owning an old car.

On a similar note, my clutch pedal always hits the floor when I shift. Just installed a new master cylinder, and I have the clevis at the end maxed out as far as it will go. I measured the movement of the slave cylinder at the bell housing...moves around 22mm which is more than usual from what I've heard. Is there something that should stop the pedal from moving so far?

In any manual car, you're supposed to (dis)engage the clutch fully at each shift and to ensure that, you're supposed to push the clutch pedal to the floor. This is not a problem.

However, make sure your free play is adjusted properly. Having the clevis "maxed out" doesn't sound right. There should be 3mm of play at the pedal--very difficult to measure. It feels just like the free play at the brake pedal. Watch this (and read the description):
