    can you hear any rattle from the DMF at idle

    I noticed mine going on the last car when there we a change in noise when the clutch was depressed

    Personally, I would stick with a DMF rather than converting to single mass as I think the single mass are heavier and have issues that go with them

    no rattle at idle. its smooth idling. mate said could hear noise when pressing clutch pedal; but when driving it bites really good no slipping or such as my 3 cars ago lost clutch so i remember how it felt before it went. so confused really as i thought theres plenty of life left in me car.

    I wouldn't worry yourself too much about it for the time being mate but I know how it feels as it will be on your mind

    Yeah once u worry about summat, it'll be on ur mind, thanks for telling me how u know it need doing, it now put me at rest knowing what to look out for. Different to single types, as once single is gone, its gone without warning apart from light clutch feel. Good that DMF will make a noise :-)
