Mk3 Mondeo Dmf & Clutch - Best Price???

8 posts in this topic

Hi all suspect my 130hp Mondeo Diesel needs a new DMF not urgently currently but its noisy and I have already had the fan belt and tensioner replaced.

I like the car so would like to keep it as I cannot afford anything considerably newer or younger so better the devil I know it has been excellent otherwise.

Can anyone recommend anywhere that is good value to get the DMF and clutch kit replaced? I definitely don't want a single mass flywheel as despite being cheaper I know it can make for a rough ride. I also want to replace the clutch kit etc whilst the gearbox etc is out and also again I understand you can lose refinement leaving the original worn plate in. I also want decent parts like LUK or original parts

I have heard some people saying they were charged 5 hours labour at £40 and others 8 hours at £50 so there is a £200 difference there so if anyone can recommend someone from experience who has done a good job on their car at a reasonable price it would be appreciated.

Looking for somewhere in the London/Essex area perhaps Kent as well. I really appreciate any advice anyone can offer

The best thing I can suggest is call around. I have not yet had the misfortune to have these replacements done, however I would certainly call around.

Are you looking at an indie garage, or a dealer to do the work for you?

are you going to buy and supply the parts for the repair?

Hi I appreciate I can ring around and I definitely plan to but I was hoping for some recommendations from people who have had a good job done at a reasonable price.

I am definitely looking for an independent garage as the labour rates at Ford's will be very dear. I am open to getting the parts myself first or if an honest garage doesn't add on for parts and just charges reasonable labour rates then that would be easier still.

I appreciate your response though.

I know a place in medway they do all the maintenance for the fleet my father law works for. Place called Adams autos Gillingham / Strood.

I've just done this myself to my Mondeo.

Cost around £400 for all the parts, DMF, clutch kit with ne wslave cylinder, gear oil, DMF bolts. I bought the parts from Andrew Page who seemed to be pretty cheap.

Clutch and DMF were LUK

I changed it myself on the roadside. Took me a while but I saved a load on labour. I would have to say it's not terrible difficult but you do need a degree of confidence as it does seem quite daunting. I was helped and hindered by a Haynes manual.

I assume it's a 6-speed, in which case you're unlikely to get away with much under £600. It's not a good idea to buy your own parts, in the event of a problem you would have to pay the labour again. Sorry for the delay in replying, I've been away sunning myself!

if you goto your local factors you should get a clutch kit & DMF for under £430. DMF are fairly cheap nowadays

not suggesting your wrong but...

i noticed you stated that only problem is its noisy and that you had a belt and tensioner changed already....are you sure its the dmf thats noisy

normally when dmf is noisy you also get notchy gear changes at minimum.

if its just noisy, then this could be the crank pulley. not the dmf.....have renewed loads of crank pulleys on the mondeos,
