dual mass flywheel very common around 70-120k early ones are diesels that get driven around town mostly start stop and hill starts and low revs, centre bearing fails on them, engine running on idle get someone to work clutch pedal, on a perfect on should have no noise change on heavy worn ones get a thrust bearing noises and totally ruined ones get big rattles and cant engage gears, as for gear stick thing remove plastics inside car have a look might find this to be another fault where the ball has worn out maybe,
also flywheel when driving car if springs have failed will bang and knock and have vibrations these are the worst failures if keep using ot as will knock out main bearings on crankshaft and input shaft on gear box at worst,
