I just cut up a wrecked GX derailleur and there seems to be one big nut cast into the plastic with the rest of the clutch assembly somehow secured inside it. You could in theory just press the whole clutch assembly out of the derailieur from the inside and replace it with a working one from a donor derailieur. That would shear off two small lips that retain the big nut when the cage is not attached, but I am guessing none of you ride around without a derailieur cage.

I just uploaded pictures of it to my pinkbike acc.

The clutch totally sucks, super noisy, non adjustable, wicked amounts of chainslap. I've tried everything on my Megatower. Trust me I'm crazy with sound deadening; extra padding, pulley lower guide (no sprocket slap) extra padding on seatstay, STFU silencer.... Nope.
Took a slo-mo video and saw the insane chain slap just on flat ground.
Santa Cruz VPP chain growth combined with poopy sram type 3 clutch... Ugg so annoying

same issue! sram gx mech with srams chainring, recently overhauled the clutch (type 3) to no avail.
this is a good video, and it is the same on all 12speed mechs. anyone got any ideas? i think it might just be the spring. i gave it one turn of preload, don't know what else to do...

What happens if you give it 2 turns of preload? Is is even possible?

You can not preload a sprag clutch. Look up the mechanism and you will understand.
