Clutch and dual mass flywheels
One of the most common problems we encounter is with worn dual mass flywheels. Dual mass flywheels are fitted to nearly all modern diesel and some high torque petrol vehicles. We are finding that the lifespan of a dual mass flywheel is around 100,000 miles, sometimes significantly less depending on use.
Worn dual mass flywheels can cause a vibration through the clutch pedal or vehicle, they also can cause a rattle that will stop if you depress the clutch. Worn or damaged clutches are generally associated with the clutch 'slipping' or a nasty smell but can also cause difficult gear change. If you think you might have a problem with your clutch or flywheel please book in for a Free inspection.
Clutch and Dual mass flywheel replacements can be expensive, this is due to the high cost of parts and also the amount of labour needed to replace them. At H M Services we only fit the highest quality parts made by LUK, Valeo and Sachs, all of which are fitted as standard by vehicle manufacturers and ensure a long service life.
