    Default 3.2 flywheel question

    Is it right that only some 3.2's have a dual mass flywheel? If so how could i tell with out taking it apart? If i have got a dual mass i take it it's possible to put an earlier spec solid item on. Is it the same as a vectra b?


    Mines a 53 plate (dec 03)

    cheers

    I would guess that it's only on manual transmissions...

    Good luck with that, Arnold Clark insisted mine didn't have a DMF even though it was presenting all the symptoms of a knackered one. I wish it didn't have one, even though it was sorted under warranty I don't fancy shelling out if it goes wrong again.

    Afaik, as I said in the other thread, pre-facelift with the half CAN bus should have a proper flywheel.

    Well penfolds in Lewisham told me mine had a solid flywheel when i gave them my reg. I took the gearbox off today and i have a DMF on a 53 plate


    I don't know nothing about them to tell if its gone although i coild hear it rattling when cold and i don't want to pay £600 for another flywheel.

    I'm tyring to get hold of a old vectra b set-up and measure everything to see if it's possible to fit that.
