The first sign of a dual mass flywheel failing is a rattle when the clutch is depressed or released that develops into sounds like clutch chatter even after full engagement. This malfunction will typically occur during initial engagement and while shifting through lower gears.
A dual-mass flywheel is a two-part unit, a smaller diameter flywheel bolts to the engine and sits inside of a larger diameter flywheel. The smaller flywheel engages the larger one via a set of springs, offering a bit of buffering between the engine and transmission to enhance the smooth feeling during clutch engagement.Be sure to pick up new securing hardware for your flywheel to ensure proper torque is applied.
