Welcome to Just Answer!!!

This issue is very common with the dsg transmission there are no aftermarket part for this you will need to replace it with a factory flywheel the noise you hear is from the inside of the dual mass flywheel good thing you are replacing it because it will break internally and damage the transmission case . I hope this helps.
