    right, what symptoms do you get when the dual mass flywheel is on the way out?
    on setting off im getting 3 knocks from somewhere down there. literally "knock, knock, knock"
    then occasionally i get the same knock over a bump or pothole (but not always)
    i dont get the knock when changing up or down gears or under braking.
    its bizarre and i cant figure out what it is!
    was thinking flywheel, or maybe engine mount.
    theres also a vibration above 50mph. (i do have a rear wheel bearing thats shot and needs replacing, but its not that thats causing this vibration, its more front end somewhere)
    any idea's?
    cheers.

    When my dual mass flywheel went on my Octavia, I only noticed it at idle. It rattled badly.

    Sounds more engine mount/front suspension/track rod end. But what do I know?

    Duel mass failing is typically most noticeable at idle. Sometimes there a rattle when the clutch is at or around the biting point. This maybe accompanied by a slight snatch as the clutch engages. Your symptoms sounds suspension related. ARB drop links are a common one to check.

    Might be worth checking the mounts on the diff, gearbox and engine.

    mine just stared doing similar, but I think it Anti roll bar drop links. At £15.50 for the pair, they are getting changed, and if its not that, they would have needed changing soon anyway because they only last 2-3 years anyway.
