just dreading what they quote if i do have to end up paying for it [:(]

Oh, man... hope it gets sorted soon. I had mine on one of those recently - actually looks quite majestic if she's clean. "This tarmac is not worthy..."

I drive my one back home when the pedal went (70 miles) around the M25 and down the A3, didn't really have to stop or change gear so wasn't that bad..

.. For anyone this happens to and who like me was to far out to get towed (Blink'in Green Flag!) give the car a quick rev before changing gear

TRY NOT TO CHANGE TO OFTEN!

Know its not much help but if it has the dual mass flywheel and it needs replacing it'll be about 600 plus fitting another option (if it fits) is to go to a single mass unit which people like JBS sell for 385+vat (for a 1.8T)

well its at the dealers , and they cant give me an answer till monday with regards to warrenty , had to sign a sheet of paper to allow them to take gearbox out and to inspect it they gave me a price of 360 odd to just do that , so at the end of the day if i do have to pay il be looking at

360 x 2 and then parts and then a bit more [:(] fingers crossed its covered

jwhite i did try and drive it but not even a hint of it wanting to go in gear so i did call out vw assist who got it to the dealers for me

and yer i know about the give it a rev and slip it in gear but it did not wana go no matter how much i tried to

had to do that on a few of my other cars ive owned and its always worked no probs , but this time it didnt

il wait for that phone call monday and just pray lol

thats pretty tough mate, feel for ya.

If you got it through an approved vw retailer do you not get a years warranty with it?
