The flywheel for the 2006-2008 Volkswagen Jetta with the 2.0L Turbo engine is a non-conventional "Dual Mass" flywheel. It is known to make light rattling noise when the engine is cold, and should subside once the engine temperature raises. If the rattle doesn't go away when the engine warms, the flywheel may have failed.

The solution is Volkswagen Jetta Dual Mass Flywheel replacement.

Clunking Noise from Floorboard Under Acceleration on Volkswagen Jetta

Drivers of the Volkswagen Jetta and GLI may experience a clunking noise associated with acceleration from a stop, or down shifting for rapid acceleration. The noise will also be accompanied by a light impact sensation under the drivers feet. Drivers may also notice unexplained changes to their front end alignment while driving.

This problem is commonly called "VW Sub-frame Clunk", and is caused by the gradual stretching of the bolts that secure the sub-frame to the vehicle body. The subframe is a large plate that secures to the bottom of the engine bay, and connects the body of the car to the engine and suspension. Over time, the bolts that secure the subframe stretch, allowing the subframe to move and hit the bottom of the car when accelerating.

VW Sub-frame Clunk repair requires Volkswagen Jetta sub-frame bolt and spacer replacement. There are many aftermarket subframe bolt kits and Volkswagen supplies upgraded subframe bolts and spacers.

It was good to find someone who really knows my german cars! The repair was expensive but it was probably less than what the dealership would have charged.

Very friendly, courteous and helpful. My vertical was fixed in a timely manner and I was given a courtesy ride to work. One thought I have that might have been over the top service that I noticed after the facts. About two days following the work I had done my car signaled that I require a oil change in 1000 miles. I am not sure this could have been caught when the car was in the shop but it may have saved another trip if so, 1000 miles early to save a another trip no problem? Of course I could have caught this as well. I was happy with the service and will return. Thank you

Called them with an emergent situation. I only have one car and they found a BMW loner for me unexpectantly. Saved me the cost of renting a car. Then they diagnosed and fixed my car by the next day. Kept it to the following morning to make sure it was working properly and returned it to me that day. I am a lifelong Mercedes Benz owner who has found a local Mercedes Benz repair shop that competes in quality and customer service with the local MB dealership. Highly recommended!
