Is a replacement fly wheel covered by my warranty?

I bought a used 2017 Audi A6 Avant in April 2021 with 29,000 miles on the clock from a main dealer. It's now January 2022, the car has a mileage of 45,000 and I have had a local mechanic tell me that the flywheel needs to be replaced. There is juddering from the car when pulling away from a standstill. The car has 12 months warranty. Have I got a legitimate case to ask the dealer to repair and replace the fly wheel under warranty?

The dealer that sold you the car should investigate the problem. Juddering is a tell-tale sign of a clutch and/or flywheel problem. If a fault is found this should be repaired free of charge.
