    Default Dual mass flywheel destruction!? (DMF)

    Ok guys, another DMF question.

    Let me ask first if it is what i think it is....

    Start the car as usual, then i depress the clutch about 1inch then the noise (tucker tucker tucker) like a ratteling roatating noise. Then i press it all the way to the floor and it stops. Bring it back up anf the noise starts again, then if i take my foot off nothing...

    Ive done plenty of searches on the DMF, but a few question i dont think were asked.

    Firstly if it is what i think it is, what exactly will happen? "Peope say oh the DMF has gone that guna cost you!" So will it just keep making that noise or will it eventually fail resulting in somthing bad and expensive?

    Next, has this problem been rectified? Is it a fault with the fly wheels or clutches? or what? because if i do need to fix this then i want to replace it with the latest remedied part (if it exists)

    Also, how much is it going to cost? (on average) I might have a go if its not too tricky....

    I know thats a lot to ask but any advice will be most helpfull!

    m8 dmf has gone id say and more you use it the harder it will to get it off( they spin and you need disc cutter to get to the bolts they spin and cover the bolts only way to get to them is cut the dmf) dono if leavein it will make it go boom as to like ****ing your gear box ect and as for doing it your self you need a ramp and like 2 people min (gearbox is one big *****) would never try this on the floor unless you can bench press 200kg as thats wat gear box feels like to pick up lol (ok it ent 200kg but i bet its a good 70kg but bench presing a lot harder then just lifting something and cost £700+ thats evertthing clutch dmf ect hope that helps

    4 hrs not bad i guess when you think how much i could save.

    I guess it must be it then. Pay or do it myself. unless its stuck on solid.

    Anybody know which would be the bast part to buy, like luk or gm or another better product?

    Thanks Alex

    Hi mate as a 2007 member Ive read lots about dmf, but never really drove other vecs with or without the fault!, well i did this week, 07 cdti wih no dmf problems! & smooth to drive, My cdti 150 04rg 65k has slight rattle, has done for some time, has got slightly worse with giving it Boot!, plus my main question as a similar case is Do you or have you noticed any slight vibration when accelerating ?, I'm trying to pinpoint mine but as I'm fairly busy & only using it sat or sun i cant remember if its always been there or just me being paranoid, hows yours.

    Vehicle : CDTI 150

    Trim : Design

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2005

    Default

    Mine cost £150.29 for new DMF and clutch with CSC fitted.

    Mind you I had taken out an AA warranty when the Vx one expired, also covered a new alternator fitted for £25.
    Best £440 (£18.34 a month for 2 yrs) I've spent as the warranty still has 19mths to run.
