Are you looking at the clutch disc in the background of the last picture? I don't see anything burnt. Looks fine to me.

Mostly based off the pressure plate contact surface. There isn't a very good shot of the disc, though it looks like there may be some damage near the circumference in one area.

i think it's the blueing on the springs/forks fingers, is that normal?

Thanks for the replies. I should have requested preservation of the parts, but didn't, and these were the only pictures I received, so I don't know that I can really provide any additional answers to advance any warranty claim.

I don't feel I got a fully raw deal as the clutch is a bit of a gamble on a used vehicle, even one that got a CPO endorsement from VW. The final bill was $1250 after comping half the labor and inflated parts. Again, couldn't have gotten it done cheaper outside the dealer. So all the evidence I have is a work order saying the pressure plate failed - no specifics, and the four pictures I was provided. I'm doubtful I could pursue a warranty claim on this alone.

I think I'll count my blessings given the present state of things and let this go.

Thanks again.

David

Consider it good in my opinion. You could have just been blown off completely! No one likes getting hit for an unexpected repair bill but paying some is better than paying all of it, and you have a completely new unused clutch installed now. Should last quite some time if you drive right.

Now lets just hope the shops torqued everything down and you have many happy miles ahead.

I know I'm a bit late to this but i had a pressure plate fail on my mk4 after 2 years and it was similar in that you couldn't see anything obvious once it came out. Turns out there's some sort of wire by those pivot pins that snapped (single wire welded into a circle) and it presented very similar symptoms: clutch pedal became soft and would not disengage fully. It was very hard to see anything wrong with anything in the clutch system until i looked at pressure plate very closely

Default VW comes through with extra $$

Thought I'd update this a little further - the dealer called me this weekend out of the blue to inform me that VW came through with extra $$ against this repair. Initially they went in for half parts half labor, and I had $1250 out of pocket. I guess the warranty department made some kind of determination based on the photographs??, or some argument I may have made in discussing this with their corporate rep??, but for whatever reason they ponied up an additional $730, and refunded it to my credit card.

So a new clutch installed for $520 on my end. I figured I would highlight when a company does right.

It's great they took care of you with this one.
They must have checked it & realized they had a weak part (or such) and possibly they have to upgrade it.

Basically you paid for parts, and by that I mean LUK parts bought somewhere else, not from the dealer...not bad at all.
