Hi, I am going to check the battery tomorrow as well. It is almost 2 years old Amaron. Was changed in 2017 then replaced under warranty in 2019 at 23 months. Guess batteries dont last in a jetta post the period of 2 years max.

DMF may not be the reason for starting trouble as such though it certainly is the reason for the shake at neutral . The starting trouble could be due to a weak starter or weak battery and associated shudder is made violent probably by weak mounts .

Absolutely right. The 2 may not be linked directly, but from my Cruze experience, a weak battery doesn't produce enough power to retract the starter motor after the initial start. It also goes on to score and damage the flywheel, and engine mounts.

2 years is standard on VAG lead acid especially with lower running.

Cost at an ASC would be double what you mention, at the very least. Source - I am getting mine replaced as we speak.

Flywheel & clutch or only flywheel?

Just DMF change is close to 68K inr as far as asc is concerned. The job order has many a subparts which is one of the reason why the cost is that high.

Only flywheel. If clutch stuff needs to be done (will know only after they remove the flywheel) it will come close to a lakh.

My Jetta 2015 DSG HL has been parked in the basement parking for last few months (Covid impact!).

last week on inspection i found that rats had chewed upon the insulation pad under the front hood (engine bay). They have chewed up a good 10 inch * 10 inch hole. Thankfully there seems to be no electrical or pipe damage (nothing that i could notice in a 30 km ride).

Do i need to get this insulation pad changed? What is the negative impact if i live with that hole in the insulation pad?

How much does in cost at the ASG? or FNG?
Thanks!

I got it checked. The battery is fine and going strong. The issue is the flyweel.

My trusted garage has quoted Inr 25,000 for getting it changed which doesnt seem bad. Upon opening if he finds if only the starter motor has gone bad then only the motor will need replacing.

He has also advised that almost all TDI go through this and it isnt very urgent and if anybody can live with the initial 2-3 attempts at starting the car then they should just live with it till it becomes a big issue.

The vibration on neutral can also be wearing off mountings as the vibrations dont always happen on N, just at times.
