    Unhappy Clutch again - Help please!

    It seemed to have died off for a while, but it's sprang back up again - for those of you who read my previous post its the same problem - for those that haven't here goes.


    A while back (just after the veccy was purchased) it started to make rattling noise whenever the clutch pedal was fully pressed down, or just before it reaches the bite on the way back up. However this subsided for a while, and there appeared to be nothing wrong with it...

    It's recently starting doing it again - had it plugged in to the reader, and the only fault was one with the heater plug relay (which we already knew about) so theres nothing detected there (as i'd assumed)


    The noise has recently got worse, and it sounds almost like a whirring/clunking when the clutch is pressed fully/near bite.

    Any help/ideas are very gratefully recieved - and if anyone has had this problem could they PM me.

    Could prices for possible solutions be included as well please.


    That's my cry for help over!

    -Joe

    Its the dual mass flywheel all right. Had the exact same symptoms. You will need to replace the clutch and flywheel. Opel paid for labour since mine had only 50k klms on it. It was still €600 for parts alone.
