    Default Noisy clutch question

    Noticed lately that when I push the clutch in it starts a rattle noise. Also in the last week when I let the clutch out pulling off it I think might be starting to slip possibly.
    Is the noise the clutch or the DMF?

    Any ideas what it is and how long it may or may not last?

    Thanks

    The main issue will be excessive wear of the clutch, eventually it will wear out
    Mine lasted 2 years (about 70K miles) from first report to dealership to eventual failure

    It was extremely erratic, occuring once a month until the final month when it occured at least once a week
    Ironically I had the car booked in for specific investigation but it finally failed the following day

    It's likely to be the DMF, but generally you would also replace the clutch assembly whilst you're at it. The DMFs have been known to damage the gearbox if they fail catastrophically.
    Having said that, I've heard of people who have driven with a rattling DMF for 10s of thousands of miles before replacing it.

    I agree sounds like the dmf, my last vectra,the noise got worse and then I found it hard to get into gear, got rid of the car wasnt worth the repiar, but if u have a gd car and dnt mind parting with about 800 I would get it fixed, the subframe need to be dropped so this is y it cost so much, also there is no point in gettin one part replaced do it all while the gearbox is out. I wpuld replace it when its hard to get into first so is not to damge the gearbox ie selector forks, my new vectra has only done 50k so just a waiting game for me but I know its coming so its not really a problem for me. Hope this helps, oh one more thing my timming belt snapped I think it was ready to go car had done 88k so I dnt think it helpped much tho just a thought to bear in mind if ure belt is needing done get it fixed sooner rather than later. There is videos on dmfs on youtube explaning how it works but basicly its a loose pice of metal when it goes attached to the engine so it reeks hqvock with the engine.
