DMF

Most new vehicles now come fitted with dual mass flywheels. These are essential components that allow an enhanced performance in the vehicle’s drivability. Additionally, these new components reduce harmful vibration.

A worn dual mass flywheel will affect the performance and efficiency of the new clutch and almost certainly result in premature failure.

Indications of a worn Dual Mass Flywheel are :

Irregular noises

Vibration

Intermittent clutch slip

Knocking on startup or shutdown

Loss of drive
