    Default Noisy DMF or Belt?

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm getting a rattle when I rev my engine when cold. When the engine its warm is not more noticeable.

    The clutch has a bit of noise when depressed but I wouldn't say it was very noisy.

    1.9 CDTI SRI 150

    Here is the video of the noise I uploaded to Youtube



    If anyone is wondering if i've had the codes read due to the car with spanner light, yes I have and it's because it needs new glow plugs

    Yep the noise goes when the clutch is pressed. Pretty strange that it only makes the noise when the engine is cold. Surely if a DMF is on its way out it should be making a noise all the time. Plus i've not got a noisy clutch.

    I only bought the thing two weeks ago so the previous owner must of know it was on the way out. He probably warmed the engine before I test drove it, he seen I had small children as well. some people have no heart.

    Mine sounded clattery a bit like that and the gear change became very awkward, almost like having to double declutch to change gear. Had dmf, clutch kit and csc done. Clutch looked fine, dmf seemed ok but csc just fell apart.

    Does it rattle when just revving it or when idle. Sometimes it could be the tensioner connected to the alternator, get someone to rev it while you under bonnet and see where the rattle is coming from. If it is the dmf the rattle should always be there not just when cold. Going from my experience the and Ive had a few it does snd like the tensioner but check for yourself under bonnet

    UPDATE

    My dmf has gotten so bad that its wreaked my starter motor. So I'm biting the bullet and getting it done asap. I rung around a few garages and most of them either say that they won't do it or it will cost £800+. But one garage recommended some other garage as in his words "they do loads of them" So I ring them and they've given me a supplied and fitted quote for LUX make of £523..... Sounds to good to be true.
