    The DMF tends to get very noisy on uptake of load, and when they fail complely you lose all drive iirc

    I had a DMF fail on me in my Mrs's car, suffice to say it sounded like the bottom end of the engine had destroyed its self it had massive judder and clattering.

    Upon inspection the flywheel face had seperated form its rubber mounting to the rear flywheel and had rotated over the bolt caps to remove the unit.
