    Default dual mass flywheel replacment

    anyone tryed replaceing there duel mass flywheel with a solid item?

    only reason i ask is because when i had a pug 406 hdi110 a few years back i had the dmf replaced with a solid item under the recomadation of the clutch specialist.
    it didnt go well and was severly out of balance but was replaced with a standerd dmf.
    when speaking to the guy who did the job he did say they were new on the market and were probably still experimenting with them.
    2 years on and wondering if anyone has tryed this solid conversion on a vec????

    i think the most anoying thing about dmf's is that they fail a lot.
    i know its not just vx that are having problems, but diferant manufactures have been using these for over 8 years now and none have got one that does'nt fail on a regular basis.
    Are we being fleeced by manufactur's, average clutch change now always mean's dmf change as well and its usally the dmf that has failed first. cost's have gone up from £250 average for a clutch to £750 and at a much lower milage on the car.
    There must be a better way to sort this problem out, either go back to solid item's ( never heard them failing all the time) or sort them out proper!!!!

    VAG supply a single mass unit for most of the 1.9TDi engines after so many complaints. Ford are supplying single mass units for the 2.0TDCi. You'd think Vauxhall/Alfa/Fiat/whoeverelseusestheengine would supply one too.

    Wish they did, just got quoted £1200 to fix my '54 1.9cdti...that'll be the biggest bill I've ever had for any car I've owned. The next biggest bill?? Yup, same car, suspension problems and broken springs, £980.

    Last time I buy a Vauxhall & I've had 7 over the years. I can't believe the expense of ownership compared to all my previous cars or indeed, my Volvo V70 that I've still got (11 years now, no big bills, 150,000 miles. Heck, its never even failed an MOT & its still on the original exhaust).

    Am looking hard at a Kia Ceed....7 yrs warranty is really looking good to me right now.

    Guy's, I have been reading everywhere on this forum about the DMF and my dad's FL SRI CDTI 150 has also had on replaced under warranty.....dont mean to sound thick but is the use of a DMF as opossed to a a solid one!

    Reduces rotational forces on the drivetrain... or something...

    Because it's essentially 2 flywheels which have a softer material between them, when one starts or stops, there's a slight 'give' before the other one catches up.

    I think.

    Does the 2.2 Direct have a DMF?
    if so is this prone to failing?
