Dual Mass Flywheel Replacement in Swansea dual mass flywheel

Modern cars (normally diesel) are often fitted with a dual mass flywheel. The idea of the dual mass flywheel is to absorb vibrations from uneven running engines- this is why they are usually found in diesels. The vibration is absorbed by a series of strong springs in the two flywheel halves. The Dual Mass Flywheel was developed to address the escalation of torque and power, especially at low revs.

The growing concern for the environment and the adoption of more and more stringent regulations have marked the development of more efficient engines. Manufacturers have managed to lower the amount of cylinders in an engine sometimes to as low as 3 or even 2 cylinders. These new engines are able to deliver much more torque at lower revs, the problem this has created is that the engines suffer from an increase in vibration. When this vibration is transferred through the clutch, it makes driving the vehicle very unpleasant. A Dual Mass Flywheel helps to even out the vibrations and makes for a smoother drive and more progressive torque increase (especially in lower gears).

Faulty Dual Mass Flywheel Symptoms

Principle of dual mass flywheel – Black: absorbers springs . Red: flywheel-crankshaft side- Blue:. flywheel-transmission side
The springs inside a Dual Mass Flywheel can wear and loose their strength, in time and cause the Dual Masses to spin and cause problems.

Symptoms of a faulty Dual Mass Flywheel include:

Heavy vibration on tick over
Difficulty in selecting gears
Especially heavy vibrations through the clutch pedal
When the faulty Dual Mass Flywheel is diagnosed, it is important to change the damaged part as soon as possible as it can cause damage to other components of the vehicle. In the past we have needed to change drive shaft and prop-shaft bearings, engine mounts and starter motors and in one particularly bad example, we needed to replace the gearbox as the vibrating Dual Mass Flywheel had shaken the gearbox housing to bits!
