Dual Mass flywheel

Recommended Posts

I have removed the engine from my 1997 5 speed. I grabbed the pressure plate and twisted it to see if the clutch was engaged tight. I noticed the flywheel moved about 2 or 3 degrees like it was rubber mounted.

As these cars have a dual mass flywheel, how much should it move? (I removed the flywheel to check the IMS and RMS.)

"Can the DMF be twisted by approx. 15 mm to both the left and the right, and does it then return to approximately its initial position?" -- then the flywheel is good.

"Can the DMF be twisted beyond the dimension stated above (excessive turn) without a noticeable increase in the spring force?" or "Is the DMF fixed (can not be twisted)?" -- then the flywheel is bad.

Flywheel manufacturer LUK should have a special tool to check out, the amount of unnecessary dual flywheel replacements in the US looks three times as much than in Europe.
