This is what a Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF) that is falling apart sounds like.
I caught it before it totally flew apart!
If you hear this sound- get it checked by a reputable shop ASAP.
This is a common problem with this model, and it is well known and documented that the DMF is weak.
Noticed the noise at 105,000 km.
Dealer was selectivly ignorant of the issue when pressed- as soon as the warranty ran out- surprise...surprise......the dealer noticed that the DMF was faulty!
Replaced at 122,000KM.
It is obvious that as the kilometes creep up with the 2006 Jetta TDI's; they are starting to show that the DMF faults and the well documented cam/lifter issues are putting them frimly into the LEMON category.
In addition- the cam shaft and the lifters self destructed around 165000km.
The car was used as a highway commuter: 200+ km/day.

In addition- the top end of the motor needed rebuilding- cam shaft chewed itself apart.

Needless to say- I repaired the car, and promptly sold it.
Bought a Honda!
Not as fun, ugly interior and shitty ride quality, but at least I am not getting raped by the repairs!!!
