Flywheel Problem

Has anyone else had a flywheel "break apart". My Sport Wagen TDI 6 speed at 130000 miles had a "soft/slipping clutch" feel. On inspection the repair center said the flywheel had "broken apart". I replaced the clutch and flywheel ($2,100). He indicated he had heard of other such problems. Curious if other folks have had similar problems?

I have never heard of a flywheel blowing apart, but i know a buddy that didn't torque the bolts down and they ended up backing out.

Did you ask to see the broken flywheel? I know shops will try and throw out some bogus stories to get you to spend more money than you need to.
