Hey guys I’m looking for some help with a 2004 beetle 1.8t 6spd transmission. This car is for a friend who got a quote saying they needed a new transmission. They brought it over and during test driving it would shake/vibrate crazy once you hit 25mph +. It felt like a bad axel or something. Once I got under I discovered that the whole front end was shot lol. I replaced the control arms,struts and mounts and wheel bearing. Test drove car felt tighter but that shaking was still there so I dropped the transmission. After opening up I found nothing wrong inside but noticed play from the flywheel. Could that be causing my issue? I also have videos from under to show the shaking if anyone cares to see it. I appreciate any input as I don’t want them to throw money endlessly trying to solve the problem.
