I have recently bought a 2008 Mk4 Mondeo 1.8 TDCi 6 speed, The clutch is slipping so needs replacing, I have had some quotes :o , The Dual Mass Flywheel feels and sounds fine, but some mechanics are insisting on replacing the DMF, But at an extra £400+ its a little too much at the min, I have researched a conversion to Single Mass Flywheel, however, some are advising NOT to convert, I can see the logic (A DMF has a purpose, therefore should not be changed to single), also is it advisable not to change the CSC and replace with a 2 piece clutch?

 

Any advice much appreciated.

Cant comment on the CSC but single flywheels can be just as good, you suffer a little more vibration due to the nature of the SMF but it does the job well!
