Generally replace clutch and pressure plate as a kit, if the flywheel it worn they can be machined, most engineering shop can return the flyweel machined the same day

Flywheel or something grings against the starter when clutch is engaged


There is no way the ring gear will hit the starter pinion unless the fly wheel bolts on the crank shaft or loose allowing the flywheel to run out of true. If you have had clutch/ rear seal work done lately the fly wheel will only fit in one position and if that was ignored at some time then the fly wheel will run out and touch the starter pinion.. I would also check the adjustment on the starter pinion as it has to be set by the lever pivot to a correct distance or it will touch the teeth of the ring gear

I have a 2004 vw passat ihave put a new clutch and fly wheel on and after i run car for a bit and you go to start it. it made alot of noise in bell houseing.


If it only makes noise when you start it, and the clutch seems to be working fine...then it would have to be the starter is not aligned correctly, or the teeth on it are damaged. Take the starter out of the bell housing, and give the teeth a good inspection. If all looks OK, them it may have been in a bit crooked. Try and line it up so the teeth appear to meet at the right place with the fly wheel teeth. It may have moved after the first start if it wasn't torqued correctly or has stripped threads.
Good Luck!

Occasionally when I apply the brakes on my 2001 VW Passat it sounds like the ABS is kicking in even when I am soft braking. The brake pedal vibrates and the car makes a grinding sound. What could be...


I had exactly the same problem with my 2003 tdi, 'scary stuff for sure' Lots of so called experts knew what the problem was, (brake pressure switch).. (ABS sensor at the wheels) .. (ABS control module)..Trial and error and lots of expence for sure, no thanks, keep away from from the backstreet cowboys and go to the people who specialise in VW repairs every day and who know what they are talking about. My main VW dealer sorted it, they found it was a problem with the YAW Sensor located under the rear seat, they cleaned it and checked it and reset it etc, they didn't even charge me ( I did have a new clutch and 2 outer CV joints fitted at the time) and now it seems ok, hasn't happened since, actually this seemed to happen more often when I had 2 or 3 people sitting in the back seat and the ESP light came on at the same time, hope you sort it soon

If the clutch goes will there be a need for a fly wheel?


The only information I have on the 1997 to 2005 Passat is; expect problems with suspension, axles and electrics. Gearbox failures are possible. Catalytic converter fault also.
