Lets put it this way I have done and converted shed loads of DMF systems to solid state and yes I didn't expect to find this puppy in mine. But as this is what I do for a living then I am thinking if it ain't broken then it ain't geting fixed. First rattle and out the little puppy comes. On the drawing board they were a fantastic idea.... The bad part was puting the suckers into production..... Saying that I have made a few quid working on them lol.... BE GOOD NOW...

My dads mk7 85 t260 had a dmf in it for some reason it's on 77k so it may not of been factory fitted ,but still there seems to be massive confusion with garages as to what goes in what

Newbie here and just got my 1st transit - be gentle lol

Can someone explain to me a dual mass flywheel and what it's benefits are supposed to be and how can a flywheel go wrong? Isn't it just a piece of heavy metal that spins at the end of the crankshaft to even out the power pulses of the firing cycle and turn that into a smooth rotation of the crank?

Because its two pieces of heavy metal joined together with springs, to absorb vibration

Cheers ake - I'd no idea that Springs (!) were used to hold the 2 pieces together - I'm no engineer but I like to learn - thanks.

Increased vibration, potential damage to gearbox input bearing, but hey you might save £50
