The reinforcements...

Call it "The grey thing" with a subtitle "the not so daily daily" for now... I will come up with a better name later, or someone make a suggestion.

Throw out bearing broke and wedged a piece of itself in the pressure plate. :shock:

That would explain the extreme vibration when engaging gears.

Pressure plate looks like garbage so I would say no. Dual mass is a ticking timebomb so I'm going to replace that. Clutch comes w the package so its getting replaced even though it may have some meat left on it.

What do you think are the chances are its the original clutch? 336000km. Is that even feasible?

TDIs tend to be long distance commuters.. high kms with less than average city kms. I could see it still being original.

We replaced the clutch on Hayley's Beetle somewhere around 305000? Totally possible.

Long story short.... anyone have a spare o2j tdi tranny laying around? or know of someone with one / someone who will do a rebuilt on the cheap.

Removed the drive flange/output flange from the tranny to help get it in easier as it was just myself. What was supposed to save time has turned into wasting tons of it as the threaded plate that the drive flange bolt threads into decided to fall inside the tranny. :x

The Source should have a bunch. Should be cheaper than the automatic.. I had to buy one for my parent's jetta a year ago.. $700.

Been exactly there.... It actually looks worse than it is. Once you get the entire front off the car the t-belt is easy! :shock:

When I did my A4, i used the "service position" for the rad support.

Yep... same thing here. A/C stuff to the left, Rad/Rad support to the right. Surprisingly well thought out and definitely a better design that the mk3/mk4 I've pulled the front end off too.

Was a tense moment starting the car again though. Not sure exactly how critical the belt placement is, but from what you seem to read it's 1 belt tooth in either direction and goodbye valvetrain...

Holy crap. Nice work!

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...
