    Clutch vibration 08 passat

    Hi all I have just bought a Passat 1.9 tdi 08 85000 miles full service history, and every thing seemed fine with car until I noticed there is quite alot of vibration coming through the clutch pedal, when the car is started from cold and left to tick over there is a slight grinding noise and when I press clutch pedal slightly or all the way that noise stops.
    The vibration is very noticeable when a put foot on pedal to change gear and is very uncomfortable after a few miles driving !.
    Apart from that the car drives spot on clutch works fine and changes gears fine just the vibration!!.
    Hope you can advice me what is causing it.

    Many thanks

    Dave

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    It sounds like the Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF) is on the way out.

    That would be a serious mistake, I have seen cranks snap due to SMF conversions and if you dig you will find out they have gone very out of fashion.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
