I have a "new to me" 2011 Golf TDI 6MT (also have MY15 GSW TDI DSG) and it's been showing (sounding) like I would need to replace the TO bearing. The tale tale rattle that would happen when clutch out and then stop as light pressure was applied to the clutch. Well, the weather is a bit cooler these days and when I went out to start the car this afternoon, I clutched in as usual, started, went to clutch out and the car lurched forward and died. (it all happened very fast, like a couple seconds fast) When I turn the key I just clicks, I can hear the ignition relay but no crank, no nothing.

I check battery, just in case and it was fine and I haven't been able to get under the car yet but if the TO bearing fails, would the sensor that tells the ECM that the clutch is depressed NOT engage, which in turn, doesn't allow the car to even crank to start?

I'll get under it tomorrow and also do some checks with VCDS but wanted to see what you all thought or would advise I look at.

Thanks!

That isn't an easy question to answer. That different USA terminology clutch throw out bearing is clutch release bearing. I've add clutch to the title.

On a manual gearbox ok. You say the same on My15 GSW TDI DSG same problem. As far as I know the DSG doesn't have clutch release bearing. You hold the brake pedal down to start. Is that a 6 speed or 7 speed DSG?

No start I would check Clutch Pedal Position (CPP) Sensor (G162), Clutch Pedal Position (CPP) Switch (F194), Clutch Pedal Switch (F36) as you have to press the clutch before it will crank over.

As you say check it out with VCDS.

I have SSP 309 6-speed Automatic Gearbox 09G-09K-09M I don't have a link so Google it
