I have a 2004 Vectra DTi 2litre
Has been a taxi and has done nearly 200k (pls take this into consideratino)
It has what seems to be the common fault of the DMF (Flyweel)
When the car is turned on and in neutral with the clutch let out, it sounds like there are tonnes of nuts and bolts crashing around the car, but when the clutch goes in and also when in gear and moving, the noise completely stops.
Can someone confirm this seems to be the problem?
I have taken it to a garage and they have said flywheel and you would need to replace clutch aswell (although it has not long had 1)
The only thing bothering me is the fat that reading through most posts, that should be it, yet they are telling me that the gearbox will also need replacing and the overall cost is going to be £1000 +
Can anyone local to me (Portsmouth) help by any chance, and do you think this is right?
