    confused Am I worrying too early!

    Hi all, i maybe worrying too early here but i have been getting a bad vibration through the clutch pedal on my 1.9cdti 120 veccy for almost 20,000 miles now but just recentley started hearing a slight rattle from the DMF, but only when cold. The car starts first time, runs smooth as, plenty power, and no noise whatsoever when the car is hot or when i turn off the car. The car has done 127,000 miles now and the vibration has been getting slightly worse on the pedal but the noise has remained very minimal. Should i just bite the 906 pound bullet (i have been quoted) and just get it done now or wait till something either brakes or the noise gets unbareable

    Wait until the clutch wears out, which won't be too long
    Replace both at the same time, as is recommended / essential

    In the meantime, buy some breakdown cover, for when it eventually happens and is required

    Get three quotes for new DMF and clutch
    When your car needs recovered have them take the car straight there

    You might also want to look at third party warranties (not many that cover cars over 100K miles)
    Check in advance they cover the DMF and clutch
