    I presume its down to the DSG clutch realease and handbrake assist function.

    Hate to be the one to disagree, but never had anything like that on mine, what mileage has yours done and has it been kept up to date with the oil & filter change every 40k?

    I agree! I'd get it checked to make sure it's not something like a clutch release bearing that's wearing out.

    Its just hit 82 bought it not long ago, so I guess I should get it done, does anybody know the prices of these clutch release bearings so I know what I'm looking at when I go for prices

    Just to add, I asked the garage I bought it off to check the DSG oil for me they said it was all okay, I'm having someone sort out my turbo soon anyway so ill ask him to check it over for me

    Just a quick question maybe related, when in a gear D S or R, is the car supposed to move as if I was releasing the clutch pedal in a manual

    This problem seems to be Internittent, but if say it rattles more than it doesn't, if it is the flywheel am I doing damage by driving it or?

    Could this be anything else? As it only seems to rattle when it's upto temp (90)

    Just a but worried with it being Xmas just around the corner, could it be another engine mount as from what I remember its only appeared after my top right engine mount bolts snapped?
