Its not normal for these parts to fail at that sort of mileage so they may contribute to 100% parts and 50% labour, leaving you with 50% of labour to pay. That said, I see you are in Malta - not sure what the dealers are like over there, in terms of willingness to help/generousity!
Hey there mate...I took the cover off yesterday and took some vids of the engine running and any noises. As you can see from the vids, there are no noises. The ones you hear are of the engine running normally, just noisy as it was in the garage. The ones I've seen with a faulty DMF had a really nasty noise, like metal plates banging. mine is weird. Still think it's the dmf. I'll try and get a vid with the DMF exposed and post it as well, to see if it has any unnecessary movement.
