    Default How to detect DMF failure

    Could anyone advise as to the symptoms of dmf problems? My 150 vectra c has 124k miles and has started with vibrations when in drive ! It is on its original clutch and DMF, though the clutch biting point is at teh the top of its travel.

    The garage will often advise for a DMF change upon changing the clutch, or say they found the DMF to be dead when they'll disassemble the clutch. Don't know it's so often with the vectra, but it's a fact.

    Now diagnosing a dead DMF by yourself, no worries, you'll just hear it pretty well ! Loud and clear !
