    DMF, 100% sure.

    But if the DMFs OK, then you could get away with just another clutch. Are you sure it's the clutch that's at fault? Because the DMFs 'slip' too!

    Chances are that the garage will recommend that you change both together, because they don't want to have to take it all to bits again if they got the diagnosis all wrong.

    Can the DMF be swapped for a solid wheel?

    No. AFAIK no one makes them for the Vectra C, and the DMFs are there for a reason. You could use a solid flywheel, but you would then get a very 'rough' feeling transmission with possible damage to gearwheel teeth. Modern engines/manual transmissions are designed for use with DMFs.

    well when driving home 3days ago the revs just shot up when in gear, but the car has been juddering since i bought it 4weeks ago, i had to drive the car home with clutch slightly depressed till there was a biting point so the car would move if i let thew clutch fully ouyt it would just rev and go nowhere so its all paggered i think m8

    cheers

    Maybe the GSIs, but they all seem to want lighter ones anyway. LOL
