2011 tdi sportwagen 60k miles, driven very nicely for atleast 20k miles(when i bought it).
Im having a strange noise that only happens when the clutch is out and the engine is idling, definitely coming from the tranny side of the engine. The noise goes from loud to barely hearable randomly(usually its quiet) with no relation to being cold or warm.The slightest pressure on the clutch makes the sound go away.Im thinking its not a bearing but either the flywheel or clutch? i'm just scratching my head with the loudness coming and going? The sound is very consistent and follows crankshaft speed? I would describe it as a tick/scrapish kinda sound? Sounds exactly like a bad bearing?
To add there is 0 road going noise and the car drives perfect. Clutch feels the same as 40k
