Co-worker bought a GTI brand new in 03, 30k miles after buying it needed a new clutch. VWOA replaced the clutch for free under warranty and he has now gone 100k miles on the clutch they replaced his original one with.

I was thinking some JBWeld qik and fill it back up with oil in the driveway to start it up.
