Im told by some to change to solid flywheel others dont well confused i live in wolverhampton i do know a good audi mechanic who could fit one any idears (solid or dual mass is it the clutch or both clutch and flywheel why dosent it do it all the time help please this has already cost me nearly £2000 last year on turbo and oil pump strainer im really beginning to lose my love affair with audi whats next i dread to think thanks ps its done 90,000 miles full service history
It is not uncommon for the dual mass flywheel to get hot and start shuttering like you have experienced here. In fact, it is a complaint of many. So have swapped over to a single mass flywheel, typically lightened, in order to eliminate the failing dual mass flywheel. If your flywheel is beginning to go out on you, you may want to consider a single mass flywheel and a new clutch disc. We a great kit for this here, click click
and I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the difference.
