Dual mass flywheel??

Postby Mgibbs1989 » Wed, 29 Jun 2011 07:25:22 UTC

Hey :) the past week or so I've had a nasty little noise coming from the clutch. It's ok while the clutch pedal is all the way down but if I bring it up to the bite while in neutral there is a very loud vibration/rough kind of sound. 3 people have said it's possible the flywheel. If it is what is recommended? Do I just replace the flywheel and do I replace the whole clutch?? I have a 2003 E46 320d

Thanks :)

I would replace the whole DMF and clutch. In fact, although my flywheel is ok, I am due a clutch change pretty soon. I have been quoted £192.50 + Vat for the labour, plus the cost of the flywheel and clutch. You can go to Euro Car Parts, although having said that BMw's prices aren't bad, especially if you manage to secure a 10% discount.

BMW list price for the E90 models are:

Clutch £260 + Vat
DMF £274 + Vat

Definitely get the clutch done at the same time. I think you'll probably find all the cost is in the price of the DMF and dismantling everything in order to fit it, and so the extra over cost should only be the supply cost of the clutch plate, which will be a smallish % of the total cost.

I think the price for the dmf from bmw for an e46 might be quite expensive unless its been reduced in price ,think it used to be a lot more than the e90 prices quoted above. Always pays to check bmw fitted luk ones which is what ecp were selling afaik.

what kind of noise.. is it a rattling noise...?? If it's from the front then could be crankshaft pulley...
had a noise on mine.. went away when dipped the clutch.. and there when released.. new pulley and sorted..

I replaced both the DMF and clutch in mine. If you are taking the time to go in and replace the DMF then you may as well replace the clutch as the extra cost are negligible and it only takes an extra 5 mins to change. Good idea especially if you are going to hold onto the car as it gives you piece of mind.

BMW use LUK parts which can be sourced from Euro Car Parts at a fraction of the costs but be warned the DMF doesn't come cheap.

THanks for all the replies!! :) I've been told by someone too see if I can get a conversion kit to
Put an ordinary flywheel in instead of the DMF?? What is this? Would you recommend it?

Thanks for all your help :)

Certainly check out the front pulley as suggested in kalv's post, before assuming it is the clutch/DMF.

The DMF is there to help isolate vibrations and smooth out torque pulses. (Particularly beneficial on a 4-pot diesel). So a solid flywheel may be a solution to do away with the DMF, but it could contribute to a rougher feeling drive and more NVH from the engine and drivetrain.

With a solid flywheel the clutch would need to be changed to a spring centre one which may come as part of the kit as the standard one is a solid centre.

Just been to a local BMW specialist and hes pretty sure its a bearing. So im going to order a clutch kit and hopefully it wont result in changing the DMF. ill let you know of the outcome :)

First post, but just thought to say that when I replaced my DMF and clutch in my mk4 Golf, I got it through GSF and it worked out a good 160 cheaper than Europarts, which really surprised me.

Now to ask a BMW question

I know this is old, but just had mine remapped today by exteme.......seemed ok for about 5 miles then clutch started to slip like mad between 1,800 - 2,400 rpm......just tried the link for http://www.buypartsby.co.uk/buy/BMW/3_S ... -flywheel/ and looks like I can get a set for about £370 :) - how many hours labour should this be to fit?

Man it was fast when it wasn't slipping lol
