Hi All :)

How serious is a cracked flywheel and any ideas how much it would cost to replace?

My KA is about 6 years old.

I'm not good with cars so any information would really help.

Thanks

Alex

A cracked flywheel is pretty dangerous, if it breaks up its going to go everywhere! Search youtube for videos on flywheels exploding... I wouldn't want to be in the car lol.

Best thing is to find a second hand one, check it for cracks and make sure it's flat and not warped or worn unevenly

Oh okay!!!! Thanks for the reply. Oops will take the car of the road now. And how much would it cost to replace?

Thanks

I guess it depends on where you get it from. Last time I had to buy one (for a mazda) it was £50 but guaranteed to be in perfect condition.

How do you know the flywheel is cracked? Has the gearbox already been removed?
