yours should have a dual mass flywheel.. dmf for short, it works like a drive line shock ab-sober so cushions the forces to the crankshaft and the gearbox this allows the gearbox to be built with lighter parts smaller bearings etc,, the down side is they only tend to last 70-120k miles depending on how used, so a motorway only car will prob never need one 300k maybe, a car used only in town on a high performance car driven hard 50k maybe,, or someone who just dumps out the clutch a lot or wheel spins or drives the car ver very low revs ie under 1500 revs everywhere will destroy them faster than a engine reving at 2300 revs min point,,Hi,
I have a 2002 Mini Cooper S 6speed - I lost my clutch the other day after noticing the car revving extremely high. Do I need to get the clutch & flywheel and what's this solid single or dual I keep seeing ?
Please help ?
not really, i can tell normally just by driving them but when they dont drive its a toss up between flywheel centre bearing and broken thrust or even input shaft bearing or back plate fingers broken.Thank you so much for that information, I did wanna ask if theres anyway to tell prior if I'd need a new flywheel before having the car taken apart
