How many miles are you putting on the car you have to change the trans fluid 2 times a year? thats WAY to much, its not going to hurt it but thats just $$$ down the drain. Trans fluid is usually 75-150K depending on the car. MAKE SURE that you are using the correct line of fluid. there are like 10 different types of trans fluid all in the same weight range. you need to know that some trans have brass syncros and some have Kevlar clutches, it all depends on what you have. What code is your O2M? I think that this is probably your issue. O2M's and just about all transmissions that are in healthy shape dont have your issue. #1 cause for trans failure is burnt out fluid or too much moisture in the fluid. Not sure if thats your problem as you changes it 10x more frequently than normal. How many miles is on the trans?

Try adjusting the cables?
The SMF is just going to make noise, period. Even with a "silent" clutch and Fluidampr mine still makes noise.

I think he is talking about adding a shim to the throwout bearing/slave cylinder because his clutch may not be fully disengaging.

I put one in my Jetta (02M), Have the same transmission and clutch in my TT without the shim - I can't tell any difference between the two.

Comes with rave reviews for whatever that's worth.

http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...aft-axial-play

doing some research lead me to this seems well explained in link,

"problem solved with a shim and bearing cover costing 14 quid in total and half an hour of time. Basically a gearbox specialist told me the main shaft bearing spring clip eats into the Bell housing causing play. I had almost an 16th of an inch eaten away. Put the shim on and its like new. No drag, no difficulty from reverse to 1st or crunchy changes from 1st to 2nd. Saved 700 quid to get it refurbed. Just follow the link below and use the part numbers for shaft play and jobs a gooden" .. source .. briskoda.

that makes no sense
Hydraulic TO bearing is self adjusting. Run it out of travel and it blows out.

I guess I should get in the business of making shims to go atop the clutch pedal pad.
