  • noise in the gear

    Sounds like the thrust bearing on the clutch to me...

    Or the dual mass flywheel... Thats the exact symptoms my old Vectra had.

      Agreed, I had both the dmf (dual mass flywheel) and clutch replaced on my Vectra, but that was more due to wear and tear and the slave cylinder giving up.

      I thought the dmf was an "in gear" noise, for example when you have selected gear 1 and this noise appears on releasing the clutch pedal.

      The clutch bearing noise temds to be more of a noise when in neutral and applying the clutch.

      I could easily be incorrect on the above theory, either option isn't nice or cheap.

      Dependant on mileage and/or wear on the clutch, if you are replacing the clutch, you may as well have the dmf done at the same time and vice versa.

        That is not good mate.

        Might be cheaper to have both done at the same time rather than separately.

        It will save the cost of a labour bill twice (once for clutch and once for dmf).

          Think mine is starting to go too. I'm at 90k now though.

          Your LEDs are on their way to you.
