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.

well thats looks a lot cheaper was due into garage monday to have head gasket done and pressure test so its out side there now so can get it done at same timeis there one to each wheel and have to be done as pairs or can you just do the one that failed

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