    Hi,

    This forum contains a lot of great info on the Beetle TDI. Plan to tackle a clutch replacement this weekend. Should I replace the original with a dual or single damped system?

    Thanks.

    welcometomyturbodies Welcome to the website!

    Well, the single-mass flywheel (G60/VR6) system can hold more torque (the Sachs more so than the Valeo) and is less susceptible to self-destructing like the dual-mass flywheel design that came on the car (here the Luk is regarded as superior to the Sachs - at least for the 2004-and-older A4 models), at the slight cost of a bit more noise while idling in neutral...

    YMMV...

    PS: I have G60/VR6 systems in both of our cars... FWIW...
