    Default New DMF

    Decided to bite the bullet and replace the DMF due to a previous concern with vibration and a worn out thrust bearing.

    I dont ride the clutch, drive easy etc - how many miles should this new DMF now last me?

    Current car is a 2006 Facelift 1.9CDTi SRi with 40k on the clock.

    Apparently starting the car with the clutch depressed should help make it last bud

    If you have a new clutch and flywheel and based on the fact that we all should know how to treat the car's, you should be set up for as long as you have the car.

    The dmf in my car has done over 100k miles, but mainly motorway, its the stop start / hard acceleration that ******s 'em up so i suspect a dmf in a 120 cdti would probably last longer than one in a 150 cdti

    Cool. Not had my car long so I guess the previous owner wasnt as caring as me.

    That said, I have the new kit fitted now so I'll be going easy and the DMF will have a better life with me!

    Not Strictly true as the 120 will have a DMF to suit 120PS and the 150 will have a DMF to suit 150PS.

    So they should last as well for each car.
