Do you think Audi will contribute to the cost of a new dual mass flywheel and clutch in my A3?

My wife bought an 2.0 TDI Audi A3 in 2005 and had a dual mass flywheel replaced under warranty after 36,000 miles in 2007. It's now out of warranty, has done 76,000 miles and needs a second DMF. Do you think I stand much chance of obtaining a contribution from Audi to a new DMF (plus the clutch which I understand has to be replaced at the same time)? The car has been serviced on time throughout, but by an independent engineer using Audi approved schedule since the warranty expired, and not by Audi themselves since then.
If it hasn't been serviced by a main Audi dealer, you stand little chance of getting a contribution from Audi, though it's always worth a try.
