This thread is to keep track of people who have run into a issue where the stock clutch disc was defective typically resulting in the material cracking and causing shifting issues that may also affect the transmission necessitating replacement.
What I'd like to do is for everyone that has run into this issue to post the week or month their car was manufactured. For people who didn't order their cars and track their cars the best you can get is the production month. To find the production month for your car, look for the manufactured by Volkswagen Germany sticker on your drivers side door jamb. It'll look like this:
The build month will be in the upper right corner, in this example, the build month is November 2011 denoted by the 11/11.
If you ordered your car and had access or were given updates, the actual production week will be the date you want.
The purpose of this is to see if we can narrow down a date range pattern where these cars fall into. I'm sure VWoA is also tracking this but, it's good information to have here I think.
I've not had any problems with mine yet. I'm at 3k miles and my build week was 11/14/2011. I'm also APR Stage 2+ as of 6/4/11 and Stage 1+ as of 150 miles on the car.
