    Default Noise from clutch/flywheel?

    hi I'm just looking for a few pointers from anyone who has had a noise
    from their 1.9 tdci clutch. mine's a 55 vectra with 82000mls I thought concentric slave, as no noise when engaged but rattles like hell when not. but having looked through the forum the DMF seems a common problem. I accept removal is a big job, and know you replace all clutch parts due to this, but my local motor factor does not carry a DMF and would need to order first, is there any way that i can find out if i have DMF problem, as I have only the weekend to sort and the factor closes sat at 1. not a problem to make sure it's the right clutch, but if the DMF Kn*%&ked I'm stuck. any help would be greatly appreciated, cheers for looking in advance

    To be honest mate your mechanic is about to bend you over and pull your pants down and shaft you to the tune of 600 to 1300 quid depending on how nice he is.
