Judder when moving off

My 3.0TDi has been doing it for years. Seems worse in damp weather. I did worry about it to begin with, but it hasn't got any worse over the last four years.

Alternator pulley... had exactly the same problem ... it has a freewheel clutch inside it that seizes.. you can check it by releasing the belt . Locking the alternator with a screwdriver and you should still be able to move the pulley in one direction .... other symptoms are noise from the power steering on full lock .. squeal when turning on the A.C. and a generally noisier tick over than normal ... pulley is about £40 but you will need special tools to change it ... hope this helps

How bad is the judder?
The dual mass flywheel went on my 2.0TDi getting grease on the clutch, this caused a really bad judder.

However, I now get a small judder every so often.

Mines the same....especially if been crawling stop/start up a hill, even gets to the point where it starts to smell. Will judder for a good few miles after, but then be fine after that..then all of a sudden it will come back

This is exactly what happened my 2015 a4 tdi. 177ps Quattro.

Audi fitted new clutch, flywheel kit under warranty at 24k miles
