  1. Hello

    An unbalanced flywheel can damage a lot of parts in your engine if you are unlucky. It will tear on the crankshaft bearings as the crankshaft is jumping also. It’s not panic damaging, but I would recommend to fix it as soon as possible.
    Some newer vehicles (including VW) are using the dual mass flywheel as a harmonic balancer for the crankshaft and instead of springs in the clutch disc.

    I would actually fix it before you are remaping your vehicle because it could make serious damages in the long run.
