    Default 05 Plate - 150 CDTi Clutch Noise

    Everytime I depress the clutch I hear a rattling noise... any ideas?

    DMF - dual mass flywheel, strong possibility. I think it shows up when the clutch is pressed half way down or so. But before you panic, it could be something very different, although thats what my money is on. Anyone else??

    Do a few searches and have a read. Is your car still covered??
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Nope out of warranty.

    How much to replace the DMF, and should I get it done ASAP?

    I think they are quite expensive, no idea if it needs doing asap etc. It may not be that, hopefully someone else with another idea will be along shortly

    I had a rattle noise when you pressed the clutch, but only when the clutch was pressed midway. If pressed al the way down, the noise went. Mine was the dreaded DMF, VX wanted £1200 to replaced DMF and clutch. I went to a local clutch centre £550 for both DMF/Clutch, expensive, but better than £1200...If the DMF goes your car wont start as the flywheel wont turn, me thinks.

    Wow!

    How the hell can the clutch go this early - it's only just 3 years old and only done 48k... am beginning to regret buying the thing.

    The clutch didn't go, it was the dreaded DMF that was rattling. Mine was on 65k on an 03 plate, but they seem to change the clutch while changing the DMF. Before I bought the car I did my research with the aid of the fantastic forum and got all the mods done by VX. Then 18 months later, out of warranty, it happened. These DMF are quite notorious for going and to top it all, most if not all new diesels have them, whatever the manufacturer.

    The clutch will last as long as it does, depending on the person driving it! Unfortunately the DMF is rubbish!

    if you have a full vx service history then take it to your dealer, you may get help if it is just out of warranty.
