    Hey everyone,
    I've got a 2012 Passat SE, 2.5 L with manual gearbox. And recently I noticed that when I hit my clutch pedal and start changing gears, there is a sort of shaking pedal feel. Plus, downshifting became way harder. I had the cable changed recently, so I am pretty sure it's fine... Can it be due to worn out lever? Or what other parts should I check to determine what's the case here?
    Thanks...

    Check cable adjustment. Clutch might not be fully disengaging.

    No cable, all hydro.

    Causes:

    Warped disk, flywheel
    Worn motor/tran mounts.
    Failing DMC

    Thanks for replying, folks. Last night had a tech look into this, and he said that the clutch lever is no good anymore. So had to order a new one. Hopefully it will arrive early next week, so that I could get it in as soon as possible, as such clutch and gearbox operation drives me nuts.

    A quick update - got my lever with Saturday delivery (https://www.carid.com/clutch-levers/), and am glad everything seems to work fine. In case someone needs the number - here's what is writtem on my box: W0133-1734819-OES
    Cheers!

    Cool, that rarely fails and can be caught be visual inspection.

    Goodluck
