    Evening to everyone

    Been searching for advice on changing my flywheel on me b6 S4 but can't find alot.
    What's the advantages and disadvantages of a solid flywheel on a S4?
    Are the kits easy to get as I can't find one?

    Also I would like to do it myself but never done a 4wheel drive before so was wondering if any one could give some advice

    Cheers

    And tbh most threads I've seen are just for A4 and not S4

    I believe the dual mass flywheel is employed for its 'roughness dampening' qualities (particularly on diesel engines) to give a smoother less obtrusive idle & dampen noise transfer along with smoother clutch operation. Having a Passat with same identical engine/gearbox (but Solid flywheel) to my B5, The difference is very noticeable, the VW just feeling less refined & indeed noisier overall.

    If in doubt go dual I'd say but I'm biased as that's what I did :playful: I've known someone to have a car/gearbox killed by going solid... could have just been incorrect installation but from people complaining about the noise and if your not going for more power I'd stick with dual, I know people also say solid doesn't need replacing but I mean the car will be good for about another 100k miles and that's if it lives that long.

    I am thinking of sticking to dual mass now tbh as I might sell the car next year so think I would be a better selling point

    Just need to see if I can get any info from anyone about doing it myself
    Rather try and save £500 if I can lol
