    Car is a 2004 8P 2.0 tdi 140 manual

    Do i have a single or dual mass flywheel?

    And as I am buying a new clutch/bearing/flywheel should I go for the dual? I assume it is better?
    What i the difference?

    Cheers

    Hi mate fairly new to this myself but am in the same pickle with the same motor! Just been to garage there's a dual mass on there as standard, you can get uprated dual mass flywheels or you can get a single mass, it's up to you, bloke reckons the single mass is really noisy, and can be really heavy, personally I think I'm going to keep the dual mass but uprate for a performance one, with a new clutch ofcourse :)!

    With a diesel,you're best with the DMF,or your car will sound and feel like a cement mixer.

    Even on the petrol models,it's still pretty noticeable.

    I cant live with it - but dont want to spend out again on another clutch/kit/fitting as i want to sell the car..
    I might just part ex it as it is and take the hit..

    How much did you pay for yours all in?

    I'm sorry it's as bad as it is,but I know what SMFs can be like on petrol engines,and just wouldn't think of having one on a diesel if you want any sort of peace in the car.
