    I think that is normal what i heared!The flywheel is rattling when you leave the clutch!So if you think there a problem may is the clutch bearing!It's difficult to hear the sound from a video!

    Hi
    I have a 1.9 TDI and have the exact same issue. When the cars idling a rattle can be heard coming from the engine bay but when the clutch is pressed the noise disappears. The car is also very jumpy when moving off from first gear and I occasionally get a slight slip. I was thinking of going to Europarts to buy a whole clutch kit to resolve this issue.
