    S3 8P Video Of Clutch & DMF Removed From My S3



    My car had covered a grand total of 19k miles when this gear was removed, the clutch started slipping a few months after stage one remap. If your clutch is slipping your DMF will most likely be flapping around as much as mine is in this video lol

    Cheers Davie

    Flywheel has to be in that condition, that is normal, flywheel is damper in whole system because clutch has no springs on it ! SMFW system has springs on clutch so clutch is damper.

    My DMF was inspected by a fully qualified Audi Master Tech, you are allowed rotation upto 3-4 teeth but the play in the plate is means it needs replaced. so no way is that normal! Why would i spend over 600 replacing it if it was fine??

    what a load of nonscence, you obviously have no idea. How can a DMF that has collapsed be serviceable???? this is the reason my clutch was slipping not because the clutch was worn out. You can see and hear the inner plate of the DMF rocking in the video, tell me how can a clutch securely clamp to a plate that is rocking....the answer is it CANT the clutch will slip as it cant clamp 100%

    if anyone believes this nonscence i will be more than happy to sell anyone my perfectly "normal" DMF for a bargain price of 50.00
