    Default Dual mass flywheel help

    Hi guys,

    Need a bit of advice here,the dreaded dual mass flywheel has decided to give up on my 05 1.9cdti.....i have decided to fix it,as the car has been a faithful servant for the last 3 and half years and has never gave me any bother up till now.

    Firstly seeing as its done 95k,will i have to do the clutch as well,clutch doesn't have any slippage problems and gear changes are crisp and positive.Would anyone recommend using a second hand flywheel or is new the only real option here.Is there a solid conversion available for it that anyone knows of.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks guys.

    I'd say spend the little extra, get a brand new kit don't waste your time of second hand, and yes i'd change the clutch aswell, its inevitable that once you change the dmf, a fortnight later the clutch will pack in so worth it in the long run

    At 95k it's a false economy not to change all parts - clutch, release bearing and DMF. As you will pay the same labour again when one of the other parts gives up due to wear.

    Thanks for the offer Danny

    I was quoted £475.80 for everything including delivery from a vauxhall parts search earlier (vauxcentre Ltd Romford) So it would be coming from your neck of the woods if i do go for it.My local garage though quoted me £650 for the full job done,and £150 if i supply the parts.

    I may just go with garage doing everything for the dearer price,as he will give me 12 months guarantee on the repair including his labour,but i know if it goes faulty and he only did the labour i will be forced to pay again to get a replacement job done.

    Ah well,the joys of modern motoring It's prices like this that make me miss my trusty old Vectra B even more now

    not the only one that knows Steve

    I would go with getting the whole lot done for £650, might be worth asking Vauxcentre how much they would do it for as i get my major stuff done there and never had any issues

    As others say do get a new clutch and a new slave as well, that way you have nothing to give you any issues in that area for the next 100K

    Just out of curiosity.I know the oil can spanner is servicing,and the car with a spanner is a fault.

    Well car and spanner one has come on tonight,coincidentally the DMF is getting noisier,is it possible for this to trigger a fault that the Ecu will pick up,hence giving me the warning light on the dash?

    It never rains but it pours if it isn't
