    I think thats just everything cooling down, its normal. I could be wrong but i've found cars with higher mileage do this more

    Put it in first gear. Leave it ticking over with the hand break on and slowly release the clutch till the biting point. If it rattles and nocks then it's your dmf

    Does yours sound like there's oil in it ?
    Been speaking to a mechanic he says it might be a hydraulic tappet ??

    That sounds like a tractor lol. Could possibly be the dmf or tappet.

    Hmmm doesn't sound like its your dmf. Still could be. But needs further inspection. Halfords auto centres do free diognistics If you make them think they'll be repairing it
