    Default Can I change DMF and not the clutch

    If the DMF rattle has just started and I have no clutch slipping, clunking or start up issues can i just replace the DMF by itself. Really can't afford a clutch and only keeping the car another 6 months aswell

    The clutch kits are £200 plus. I could do without that but I suppose I won't know what's knackered until its all apart

    Surely if you catch the failing DMF in time does this not stop the clutch failing? Why does the clutch fail too?

    If the clutch components are ok and serviceable, can't see any problem with refitting them to a new DMF - I think the point some of the replies are making is that if you are stripping it down to replace the dmf you may as well replace the clutch components. If you are selling the car the extra cost of the clutch, while being a selling point, will not add to the value of the car and is dead money. Bit hard on the new owner - but hey that's life

    true, i second this, you may get lucky and the clutch will last... but more than likely you will have to pay again for the clutch to be replaced before you sell the car... i had mine done in December, new slave cylinder, clutch assembly and dmf, it cost me £640 FROM A1 clutches, not original parts, but 12 months warranty and reputable by all accounts, it is the cheapest way i'm afraid... unless your doing it yourself and you can save £200 labour, i had my car back in 4 hours of dropping it off :-)

    The clutches fail due to them being self adjusting and not being reset properly.
    Spend the extra £200 and save yourself the hastle, also means you'll have a new slave cylinder which can fail and need the gearbox removed to fix.

    Do you mean a new starter motor - why would he want to replace that if its presumably working ok. Suppose he could consider replacing the engine as well.
