Any description of what it sounds like. Metal on metal, a flutter, thump.

does it do it when your shutting the car off or all the time? the manual had problems with the dual mass flywheel comming apart. you would get a rattle when you shut it down or started it as a symptom. The Dsg's had a similar problem same symptom.

Sure does sound like the DMF is on it's way out. Did you buy it with any warranty left? If so take it in and have it inspected. Oh, and if you bought a extended warranty they will likely not cover it as the transmission is technicaly a electrically controlled manual trans, and they usually will not cover flywheels.

While it is a known issue in the VW community, that does not make VW responsible to repair it if infact the vehicle is out of factory powertrain warranty. If you noticed VW does not like to warranty anything they do not have to.

Actually from working at VW i can honestly say VW will bend over backwards to make sure thier customers are happy. Usually it is the shop that will not keep up the customer service... For issues that are out of warranty VW will always try to help the customer but sometimes the shop has to help out a bit to by throwing in some labour for free. Most of the time the shop does not want to do this so they will just tell the customer that VW was unwilling to help. I have seen them replace engines, trans, you name it for people that were out of warranty...

Please enlighten us as to your dealership location. Hopefully it will be close to me. What do you do for VW?
