If you still have the stock Dual Mass Flywheel (DMFW), I would remove the inspection cover and look for any floating pieces/parts. On a DMFW the damping springs are in the flywheel instead of the usual spot (clutch disk) you would normally see. Check those springs to see if all of them are in place with their plastic retainers. You can also check the rotational play between the two masses against each other. More than 5/8" (measured at the rim of the flywheel) and it's on its way out. Also check the throwout bearing for weirdness too. Cheers!
