Team, this is my first post on this forum although I've used the great content for a while - thanks to all for the great contributions. Yes, I was prompted to start my journey here on the "members intro" page :)

My daughters 2005 Jetta TDI has some sort of clutch issue that I want to confirm before I take any next steps. The problem started all of a sudden... when you apply torque to the engine in any gear I get a Grinding type of noise and RPM's go way up but no positive motion from the car. The same problem occurs in reverse. The clutch pedal engages and disengages fine. The flywheel has made a rattling noise for years when the clutch was not pressed; probably the duel flywheel. This may be an obvious clutch symptom but its different from other clutches I've had on cars/trucks and I wanted to confirm. Thanks all!!

Welcome to the forum.


After being prompted. ;)

This is a new forum layout which is owned by a company last year that doesn't give a dam with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or original similes which they refuse to install. It doesn't show the car spec/location.

Add your car specs to your signature that will show on every post you make.

Car spec now shows not for all members.

Release Notes

We Are Live - Community Feedback

This has been talked about many times.

I've made a poll which no one has posted in, there are a few votes and comments.

Do you like the new forum features?

Wiki pages have been restored as of 7th December, I asked where is the link it should be on top of the main forum.

nothing I've seen. I had a DMF make a slight knocking sound on my first Jetta, replaced it , the sound went away.
