Dual Mass Flywheels in Uxbridge & Iver                                      Tel: 01895 813900

What is a dual mass flywheel?

A Dual Mass Flywheel is basically two components (the primary & secondary mass) linked together by a damping mechanism within the secondary mass and located by the central carrier bearing. The damping mechanism is there to absorb the torque loads of the crankshaft and to help deliver a smooth transfer to the road wheels via the clutch.

Cause & effects when faulty

  • What seems to happen is excess temperature from drivers riding their clutches affects the compound.

  • The result can be poor starting and running from the timing taken from the flywheel. When worn it can make the car feel like it is misfiring especially on diesels.

  • Poor starting from the starter motor engaging on the starter ring on the flywheel.

  • And failure of drive, blamed by dealers as clutch failure and charged for as clutch failure, when really the lack of drive is because the two parts of the dual mass flywheel have separated.
