    Default Dual Mass Flywheel

    Hey guys and gals, been a regular visitor - contributor to this forum and would like to pass my thanks on to all that have helped solve problems for me in the past.

    This is just to let you all know that my DMF has just started to make the noise

    so been on the phone to stealers who want £668 for complete - clutch/flywheel/csc...
    special price apparently, any ways quoted me £1400 or there abouts to supply and fit.....robbing*******

    so been ringing round and found a garage local to me who quoted me this
    £469.00 for DMF/Clutch/CSC etc
    £10.00 for oil

    and get this...........cause its a big job and subframe needs to come out £120 for fitting........all plus vat but hey thats over half price!
    12 months labour warranty and two years on parts!

    Don't know about you guys but think thats a cracking deal.....

    any one else on here need it doing cause i'm sure if we had a few we could get even cheaper.........think its worth a try!

    oh and they are not a back street garage, last time I used them was about twenty years ago when I had a MK2 escort,

    Any ways anyone interested let me know and I will do the running around.
    Andy

    IIRC mine was £800 all in for new Clutch/DMF/CS&MC so yours is a very good price, what parts will they be supplying, probably won't be VX at that price, will they be SACHs parts or something else..?

    Great Price!

    I had mine done last year on my previous vectra and the parts cost £440 and the labour was a 'back street garage' sole proprietor and it cost £150 as it was a 'friend of a friend'

    Awesome, sounds perfect then

    But, just to add, mine was rattling for about 10K miles+ and was fine, didn't affect the drive or anything, just made the noise so you don't have to replace it straight away (with Christmas looming).

    It'll rattle.... I've never heard of a horror story of a rattling DMF being left temporarily, like I say mine was doing it for a while, then replaced as and when I could do it.
