If the DMF had failed would the vibration be intermitant ? Basically I've had the car now for 6 mths & in this time I've had servere vibration coming through the car on 3 seperate occassions. The car seems to loose power, the clutch doesn't feel the same & you get this terrible vibration. Took the car to 'Midland VW' who have diagnosed the fault as being the DMF / clutch - @ £1000 in the ribs if the warranty company won't pay up ! ! ! Just looking for some advise really before I instruct the garage to strip the car ready for the warranty assessors' inspection. Hopefully they will cover the bulk of the cost & I will only end up paying for the clutch as it is a 'wear & tear' item - i,e, not covered under warranty. Does the DMF just fail or is this too a 'wear & tear' item ? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.
