    Default DMF

    Hello guys,

    I'm suffering problems with my DMF. I can hear a strange rattle already.

    My question is: how long can you drive on with this problem and what are the risks?

    Thanks!

    regards,

    Some have said on this forum that they have travelled many thousands of miles with a rattling DMF, some have had to have it replaced soon after the rattle began and deterioted rapidly. In short, I do not think anyone can answer that. Risks, I dont know but one risk is surely being stranded somwehere if it breaks completely.

    Right.....this is great news. The Opel (here in Holland Vauxhall is called Opel) dealer tested the car an checked the gearbox oil on metal parts but found nothing. They said "drive on with the rattle, the car isn't worth a repair because of its age" (august 2004). They clearly don't know what's the problem.....
    Changing the clutch is about 8 hours of labour and then the clutch and flywheel, I need a sponsor!!!! This is the worst Opel I ever had, after Vectra 1.8, Vectra V6, Astra 1.6 16v, Zafira 2.0dth.

    How much is a repair at the VX dealer?
