    Default DMF/clutch problems.....

    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?

    the netq should cover the clutch. you may well have to press VX customer care hard, but it SHOULD be covered..and also it should be changed as a matching pair with the flywheel... push them hard, it's a well known problem... Kick and scream Craig..i know it's not normally your way, but you'll have to put yourself 'about' a bit matey..

    as for the massive turbo lag..hopefully it's not the start of probs there, but you have logged the issue so keep a note of the reference number in case you need to claim on it later..

    Oh don't worry Mark, I won't be going quietly with this one. I've had just about enough of them now so lets see what they have to say in the morning.
    Might just warrant a call to our friend if I don't get any sense.

    Well, went back in today and after minimal fuss it's booked in on Thursday for them both under warranty.

    They still tried asking for a contribution towards fitting but they were told where to stick that.
