Question 99 Z3 Ratchet Noise From Rear

I humbly summon the Z3 Powers and the knowledge bank. Just heard something weird today. Released the clutch today to leave a red light and heard a slight "ratcheting" noise coming from under the car in the driveshaft or rearend area. Sounded like mating splines jumping across each other. It was real quick and didn't happen again the rest of the day. I hammered on it later in the day thru the gears and nothing. Any thoughts on where to start looking? Thanx in advance for once again tapping the brain trust.
