Q: Has anyone had a spider gear failure? on 2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I've had the car for 5 1/2 months and driven 10,000 miles, when the clutch went out and the spider gear exploded from the transmission. I was coming up to a stop sign and depressed the clutch, heard a pop and the clutch would not come back up. When taken to dealer, they will not cover under my bumper to bumper warranty.

this can happen in any car with a manual tranny. the warranty will not cover this because it's a "wear" item.
(BTW: no extended warranty EVER covers clutch parts)
