    Default Dual Mass Flywheel ???

    Weird noise from clutch/gearbox area on v6 cdti.

    Noticed a weird noise when slowing down in the lower gears.Also a loud rattle when the clutch pedal was up,but would disappear when pressed down.Normally I would have thought that it was the clutch release bearing,but now the symptoms have completely disappeared and the car drives perfectly!??

    Talked to a Vectra cabby who said he had exactly the same symptoms and it was found to be the flywheel that was falling apart! He reckoned he had done quite well to go to 50,000 before it gave in!

    I've just had mine done at 101,000 on my 1.9CDTi 120. The car was new to me so I know its the only one its had. It rattled off & on at first, then always for 20,000 miles before I got it fixed. Symptoms.....loud rattling/banging noise when at idle or in various points of clutch travel. If left for a bit (as I did) then you get increased vibration in the gear lever, clutch pedal & steering wheel.

    As for the fix, new flywheel & clutch. I was quoted £1200 at Fiskens Vauxhall, but the final bill was only (only!!) £893. Sweet as a nut now.

    Cheers
