Customer Question
Rattle coming from the...

Rattle coming from the torq converter on 2014 beetle r line with 2.0 liter DSG clutch.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the clutch been slipping? Are you having any trouble shifting?

No problem with clutch slipping or shifting. Thought it was loose exhaust initially

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Beetle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Took it into local local repair shop as neares vow dealer is several hours away. Local repair put it up on rack and said noise was coming from the torq converter and recommended Intake it to a dealer.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
