    No thats probally the clutch bearing

    The DMF sounds worse when the clutch is pressed, but rattles like this on idle.


    "This is a short video so you can hear what the dreaded Vectra C Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF) rattle sounds like.

    The video starts with no rattle (except for the normal engine noise).
    About 5 seconds in you can hear me say "Now", at which point the clutch is pressed down and you can hear the banging/rattling noise start."

    Mines exactly the same! only noticed it the other day seems to be louder when cold too. Sometimes can't even hear it when been on a long run

    Is it a big job changing clutch bearing? what will happen if its left?

    Clutch release bearings can get really noisy before they need changing.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdVJ5vnO6Jg

    Best to have the clutch assembly inspected as the bearing can be replaced cheaply but its a case of seeing what else is worn at the same time.

    Some of the older gearboxes had inspection holes, greasing up release bearings was common practise, (blob of grease and a long screw driver or spray grease if you were lucky), if they got rattly.

    Sorry for the vid's but its the best way to get the point across I think
