    confused Strange noise. DMF?

    Hi, can anyone help in the mornings when I fire the old girl up and pull away I get a strange rumbling sound just as I take up drive. This goes on for a few minutes while on my way to work then goes away. Iíve checked for any lose covers and had a good poke about but canít find anything obvious. Could this be the start of DMF failure? If so how long have I got as Iíve just purchased 4 new tyres that I have just sold one of my kidneys for and canít afford to lose the other one just yet. It's a 2005 CDTI 120, 100,000 miles

    usally the DMF is more like a rattle, and can be heard when stationary, let the clutch up at idle and it rattles, push the clutch down and it goes away. open this link to youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIfiHkUAgWc thats what a DMF sounds like when it failing. i do know whatyou mean though, i have a 120 2005 design, with 104000 on the clock and boy does is sound a noisy engine at low speeds, but in the cruise is really quiet.

    Thanks for your advice barney490, just been out to the car and had a good listen, as you said no rattling at idle with clutch out. I put my hand brake on and tried to pull away and I get the said noise. Think itís going to be a trip to the local garage to investigate
