Clutch / Flywheel - advice in Garage services Posted February 23, 2013 · Edited February 23, 2013 by KVF It was mentioned he wasn't sure if it had a dual mass flywheel but that was as far as it went when I dropped it off - it was then returned to me with the new clutch and MOT so I obviously expected the clutch to be good for another 80k ish. When the vibration started I thought it was a UJ on the driveshaft as changed one of those a year or so ago so it made sense that the one at the other end of the shaft would fail. But it was the flywheel. I just would have expected it, since the gearbox was removed at the time, to have replaced the flywheel at the same time if 80-90k miles is their typical life or if it was looked at then I would expect less than 12 months later that it fails and takes the clutch with it. As a non-motor engineer with limited experience/knowledge I feel it's a lack of due care not to have either replaced it or inspected it.
