    Default Help Diagnosing (Possibly DMF)

    Guys,

    Recently my v6 CDTI has developed a somewhat annoying kind of rattle when i press the clutch.
    When i say rattle, it's more like that classic diesel noise, but just a little bit louder, nothing major but i notice it.

    It only happens when i de-press the clutch about half way, but then goes if i press it right down to the floor, and also goes when i bring it up to bite point and accelerate away.

    One thing that i also noticed was that a couple of times recently it's been a little 'notchy' getting it into first but that could be down to the rapid decline in temperature we've had recently?

    I'm in two minds whether it's possibly the bearing in the clutch of similar or (i'm hoping not) the start of DMF failure.

    The cars a 55 plate and done 41k... any ideas?

    From the description, it certainly sounds like the classic DMF symptoms.

    My V6 diesel also has the same problem.Symptoms are annoying rattle/clatter in neutral at idle,goes away when you press the clutch pedal down,strange noise when you blip the throttle and then settles down to idle.Also a noise when slowing down in the lower gears (foot off gas pedal).Sometimes it will also completely disappear for days and then come back with a vengance!

    Current diagnosis is failed/failing DMF.Further investigation is necessary.
