    Default Car is going in to see if another clutch needed - What do you think?

    My car is rattling again like a rattle snake.
    I think it's the clutch and it's booked in for December 16th to confirm if it is.

    Its only been on 10,000 miles

    I have a couple of video's of it on tick over:



    Note: Clutch is depressed on this video and the car was warm as it had just come back from a trip.


    If you don't depress the clutch in then it is awful eek. :'(



    Any opinions.

    Mines is terrible in the cold, sounds like the flywheel. If it was done within a year then it should be under warranty. Then even 10,000miles alone is unacceptable clutch/flywheel life.

    Sounds like the flywheel m8. They should have offered to fix this - even if you paid for parts and a bit of labour extra. It is always a false economy to change one and not the other.

    I'm being a complete *****.

    They changed the clutch and flywheel.

    I think my flywheel has gone again not the clutch.

    Im in a bit of a tired state atm lol

    My bad.


    PS: Could a mod change the title to say flywheel instead of clutch please

    Hopefully, yeah.

    My only concern is whether the DMF is actually damaged.

    IF it isnt then i have to foot the bill as they are going to take it apart. Eeek.

    There's a noticable difference on start up so would have thought it would be dmf related.
