Dual Mass Flywheel

Posting as a new thread...

Two questions:

1) is our stock flywheel a single or a dual mass one (I am confused)
2) if single, where can I get a DMF stateside? It seems that PumaSpeed offers one (mine is a 2015, so this is MK7, I guess?)

Thanks as always, fellas.

Well, if this is the case I'd keep the one I have - I suppose that it is OK after 80K miles...

Id wait till clutch is slipping. Then upgrade to single with stronger unit.

My DMF started making noise after just 1k. Definitely get something better than OEM.

Well, I have put 80k miles on the OEM flywheel, haven’t had any issues. I am going to swap the clutch for the ST200 number. The only thing I am unsure about is whether I should replace the flywheel or not...

I would but you can always examine it first and then decide.

Saw your other post. While you are going through trouble of doing the clutch, you should go ahead and consider replacing the flywheel with a new unit. The OEM flywheels are dual mass and have springs within them that tend to fail prematurely leading to rattles. If you do it with clutch should save you some labor costs since you are doing it all at once.

Also if you are doing clutch make sure to go with a new slave cylinder as well.

Those are wise words. That’s also what my mechanic said about the slave cylinder. Will do.
