    Default DMF on the way out! Your feedback please?

    Hi,

    I'm just new to the Site and previously I've found the site feedback/help extremely useful in determining past fault's with my car.

    A few weeks ago I noticed that if you rev the car whilst idle and in neutral (clutch out) there was a small rattle, more recently the rattle is noticable when in neutral (intermitently though) and it dissappears when the clutch is pressed in. Reading through several forums it's clear the that DMF is on it's way out.

    I suppose reading other people's posts I've been lucky as the car is just about to turn 120k and apart from wear and tear, EGR valve & Alternator replacement the car has been a great car..

    I would cover around 70 miles everyday 95% of which is 6th gear with cruise control.

    I was wondering based on the above would it be ok to monitor the rattle level rather than a knee jerk reaction and change straight away as the car is driving sweet, findings gears easily and MPG is a heathly early/mid 50's?

    Thanks for your input/help.

    It's pretty much how long is a piece of string on this, until it finally fails

    Due to the high cost and it being essential to replace the clutch at the same time, just wait until the DMF takes the current clutch with it

    You will get some advance notice as you will get what appears as a similar symptom to clutch slip

    Hi mate,

    I usually would jump in and spend a lot of money when its probably to early to do so but as the car is driving well etc my gut feeling is to wait for now and see how it develops (if it does).. there is absolutely no slip in the clutch at the minute and fingers crossed its continues that way...

    Really appreciate all the feedback.

    Cheers Marty.
