    Default dmf rattle....very strange?

    my dmf has been rattling its tits off for about 4k miles now (rattles the whole distance of the pedal when pushed down)

    but last night i was doing a 3 point turn then parked up for 5 mins,when i came out i pulled off with my music on and the pedal and clutch bite felt diffrent??? so i turned the music down thinking somethink aint right!

    then pushed the clutch down and there was no noise at all and the clutch bite felt really low compared to normal?

    also since this the car seems a lot faster accelaration?

    is this what they go like just before they give u completly?

    cheers guys

    Your clutch is probably on its way out too.

    When mine was going the clutch feel used to change all the time, usually after prolonged motorway use, or heavy town use - been spot on since new DMF/clutch etc..

    Mine was rattling for 10K + miles too.
