    confused Is my DMF on the way out?

    It's probably been discussed a few times before but I need to know what's actually up with my veccy C 150 2006 Sri.

    From start up it sounds knocky and if I push the clutch in the engine sounds quieter and sweet!
    When I drive off it seems difficult to select gears almost as if when you select gears without putting the clutch in.

    Took it to A1 clutch center in Wigan who quoted £680 incl for full DMF/ clutch/ bearing/ labour/ vat, and said he wouldn't be able to be 100% sure it all needs replacing till he opened it up. A1 clutched came highly reccomended so my second Q is can anyone else vouch?

    So how do I know it's the DMF & clutch on its way out and nothing else?

    Good advice needed here please chaps

    If it's knocking on biting point when you are in neutral then the DMF is on the road out. Not thend of the world they will go on for ages - mine has for 5 years.

    If however it's the clutch throw-out/release bearing that could be an issue - you do mention you find it hard to find gears. DMF's aren't known to affect this.

    Sounds like the release bearing to me tbh. Subframe needs to be dropped in order to get the gearbox out.

    Cheers ALL. So will the release bearing hamper the gear changing n make it difficult to select?
    I don't wanna spend the dosh fixing the DMF complete if it's another big job elsewhere on the car that really needs doing.
    Wouldn't wana sell the car in this state as its prob something n nothing to fix ie DMF and also it's been a good car xcpt for a couple of cruise stalks. Needs another one now too!!

    The release bearing involves the the gearbox coming off too. If the car is on high miles get the clutch done too, and if the DMF is showing signs of wearing, get it done too.
