For trouble-free replacement of a dual-mass flywheel
Every second new passenger car and light commercial vehicle is equipped today with a dual-mass flywheel (DMF), and this number is increasing. A DMF is standard equipment for most passenger cars with diesel and high-powered petrol engines. A total of over 85 million vehicles are outfitted with one in Europe today.
Like the clutch, the DMF is subjected to normal wear and has to be replaced if need be. The experts from Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket not only have the LuK RepSet® DMF for this, they also have the LuK DMF as a separate package in their portfolio.
Because the DMF performs a safeguarding function between engine and transmission, if the DMF is not intact it can cause vibration-related damage to the drivetrain. To replace a DMF with a rigid flywheel using so-called conversion kits from other companies is not without risk. These alternatives do not meet manufacturer specifications and can lead to gearbox rattle, droning noise from the body shell and in a worst-case scenario complete drivetrain system failure.
Professional garages depend, therefore, on the original – the LuK DMF from Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket. This helps garages avoid the risk of follow-up problems or warranty claims by vehicle owners.
And by the way – you can test whether or not a DMF is worn down while it is still installed using the DMF on-car tool from Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket.
