Do I need to replace DMF with clutch?
REPAIR OPTIONS That’s why many experts recommend replacing a dual mass flywheel when changing a clutch – especially if the flywheel has more than 80,000 or 90,000 miles on it. The flywheel should be considered a wear item just like the clutch, and should be replaced when a new clutch is installed.
Can you replace a DMF with a normal flywheel?
There are plenty of reports out there of drivers and our members who have happily replaced a DMF with a solid flywheel. They will generally concede that there is no advantage to having a solid flywheel though in terms of performance, so the only consideration is cost.
How much does it cost to replace a clutch and DMF?
The average dual mass flywheel replacement cost in the UK is around £750-£1,500.
What are the signs of a dual mass flywheel going?
Somewhat ironically, and despite the fact that the primary purpose of dual mass flywheels is to reduce engine vibrations, excessive vibration that may or may not be accompanied by “clunking”, “thudding”, or other mechanical noises is usually the first symptom of a failed or failing dual mass flywheel.
Can you change the DMF at the same time as the clutch?

DMF are subject to wear and if the sprung link goes will seriously hamper the smooth running nature of the engine.
Do you replace the clutch or flywheel at the same time?
Since clutch replacement usually requires removal of the flywheel it makes sense to do both at the same time.

Can a DMF be replaced with a flywheel?
I chose to replace the DMF with a new “early” Luk DMF which is supposed to be known for good life. It also dampens noise vibration harshness when working properly. If you never want to deal with rattling DMF again you could replace it with a regular solid flywheel from a VW Corrado G60 4 cylinder.
Can a dual mass flywheel be replaced by an OE?
Replace the OE dual mass fly wheel with an OE-spec replacement. * An OE-spec replacement dual mass flywheel will restore the vehicle’s stock performance and feel. The downside, of course, is the cost, as replacement DMFs are generally much more expensive that single mass flywheel conversion kits (if a conversion kit is available, of course). 2.
