If the clutch and flywheel is original to the car it's a DMF.

And I wouldn't call it a failure point, DMFs have a service life. 200K miles is pretty good. Some last longer, some don't. The DMFs in early DSG transmissions had shorter lives, but they're better now.

If the OP's car has 220K on it, odds are any clutch kit he installs will last the remainder of the car's life. I like the way DMFs perform in these cars, but there honestly isn't a big difference. Most SMF kits sold these days have quiet hubs on the disc so there's no rattle people used to experience in the G60/VR6 setups.

A reasonably accurate Youtube vid on some of the differences between dual mass and single mass flywheels:

My 2014 with 50k miles DMF is starting to knock in cold weather so I disagree that it was just early DSGs. It's been pampered all its life too.

I do agree with getting a replacement DMF, just make sure it's an updated one as the earlier OEM Sachs ones are more likely to fail.

Had the car since '14. Jason put a new engine in a used wagon i bought from one of his new clients who blew up the engine getting bad service before he met Jason. Jason had another client that crashed his jetta and sold him the engine out of it. I paid Jason to merge the two. The engine is 120 k less miles on it. Not sure if he put the trans in as well. Never asked him. Thanks for that info Danny and Vince. Cool.
