Looking for some advice pls!
Got my car (55 plate Vectra CDTi 150) MOT'd and Serviced today and the dealer said their is a rattle from the flywheel. I had noticed it a couple of weeks ago when the clutch is depressed to the biting point.
The dealer has quoted £1600 to get the Clutch and Flywheel replaced which I just can't afford! They said it isn't that urgent and it can wait for a couple of months....
A couple of questions:
Is it wise to wait for a couple of months or can it lead to more serious damage?
Is £1600 normal for this kind of work?????! Does anyone know of a reliable place near South Manchester where I can get this done for less?
To save cost, what parts do I need to source for a mechanic - just a DMF and a clutch kit? Where is it best to source these from?
Thanks for all your help - really don't need this just before Xmas!
p.s. It's only done 34k - is there anyone at Vauxhall I should be shouting at?? It seems to be a common fault - surely they should recall?
