    Default dmf life length?

    well guys i bought my vec at 100k with the fly having a lil rattle with the clutch half way in, im now on 124k and ive noticed that the noice is no longer just at half way, it is slightly their before half way but not really any louder or any more harsh..

    i always start the car with the clutch in, and take it easy when the engine is cold, but it does usually crunch going into 2nd/ 3rd when cold.

    i just wondered how long others have lasted with the rattle, or if other have experienced my situation?

    It can rattle forever, but it's no longer doing its job of isolating shocks to the gearbox.

    No. Crunching usually occurs if the gearbox oil is cold or is not at the correct level (too high) or if you have some other clutch issue.
