    Pulsing / jerking when decelerating 2001 2.5tdi quattro 6 speed manual

    Still looking in to this and still stumped. The only notable thing is that both the driver and passenger side differential flanges for the driveshafts have some looseness to them suggesting worn bearings in the gearbox, but everything else checks out fine.
