You would be better going for a solid flywheel - the Dual Mass Flywheel reduces vibration within a diesel engine, but is soft and can be broken easily. The best thing I can liken it to is Alloy wheels vs steel wheels, steel is stronger because it has so much more contact points compared to an alloy wheel and is much harder to buckle.

You could find that it may be the Clutch Release Baring has been putting strain on the DMF, worst case scenario you need to replace both.

Clutch is circa £400, and the Flywheel can be from £600. so hopefully you wont have to bite the full £1000 bullet!

I had to bite the £1000 bullet well £1052.02 ,They couldn't get a solid flywheel from there suppliers so it had to be another dual mass :(

Clutch kit £174.26
Slave cylinder £79.53
flywheel £382.90
Labour £240
+VAT = £1052.02

Its running so much better and the MPG has gone from 35mpg upto 43 mpg .Once my wife starts using for work again i'll will see if the MPG has improved or not.

I was thinking of going down the solid flywheel route .The guy in the garage said there might be a slight more vibration but he thought most people wouldnt even noticed the difference.The way its been running the past couple of weeks a frying pan used as the flywheel would seem better
