    Hi, after some quick help if possible before I see the dealer. Basically I've been noticing a slight knock/pulse through the clutch people when depressed on idle, I've also notice that I can feel it through the steering wheel, again on idle. Now is this normal or something I should be concerned about.
    Cheers Kai

    How many miles has the car done?
    Could be the Dual mass flywheel wearing out.

    It's done 56k. When you say it could be wearing out, how long can they last for one those symptoms appear and how much to change?

    I had my clutch and flywheel done. As with all things on our 3.2's its 'the biggest job in the world' but I paid £650 however the gearbox was getting done at the same time (paid for by the dealer) so that saved a lot of labour costs.

    Hard to say what kind of life the car had before you bought it. I wouldnt think it needs it at that mileage but.....
