My money on DMF but either way you need to replace clutch kit and DMF.
But before you go down the changing route confirm driveshafts and diff are fine.

Almost certainly drive shaft spline's on the intermediate shaft have gone. Couple of big articles in the ref library about that :)

Just realised you have a mark 2,I saw 1.8tdi and assumed mark 3.
 As above drive shaft splines in that case.

If one side goes it will have no drive due to the way the differential works.
