I took the car into Vx for a knocking noise coming from the clutch area amongst other things, it was found to be the clutch
and DMF, great I thought, get it done before the warranty runs out. They told me that the DMF would be covered under warranty
but they were waiting for authorisation from VX to do the clutch and she would let me know when I could book it in, I told her
that it's got networkQ warranty and that it should be covered anyway and left it with them.
When I got back to work, they rang and told me that VX wanted to see my service history, not a problem as it's all well within the
intervals and done by a main dealer so I dropped my service book in.
Three weeks and a lot of messing about later I got a call to say that the DMF would be covered no problem (which I already knew), but
they'd have to strip it down first and if the clutch was deemed to be wear and tear then it wouldn't be covered.
Now I was under the impression that, if the DMF had gone then that and the clutch were replaced as a pair, and even if not then
the networkQ would cover the clutch.
Surely, if it's wear and tear on the clutch then it's netQ and if its component failure caused by the DMF or any other reason then
it would be covered by the standard VX warranty.
Also, the car seems completely flat below 2000 rpm then picks up and at 2500 rpm gives you a massive boot in the back, feels like
more than the usual kick you get from the CDTI. When pulling away it's borderline dangerous at times and when it was hot last
week it got to the point where I had to turn the aircon off to pull out at junctions.
It asked them to check this out when it went in for the DMF and they told me that there weren't any fault codes and they couldn't
find a problem, they'd see if the new clutch/DMF would sort it.
Does this sound like a related problem or something totally different?
