    DMF on Astra 1.9 CDTI?

    Have just traded my Mondeo for the Astra 1.9CDTi 150 due to DMF problems but was wondering whether the 1.9CDTi 150 also has a DMF? Can't seem to get a definitive answer when I google about and was crossing my fingers that I don't have to go through it all again!

    Cheers guys

    Great

    Can't see oodles of issues with them on this forum compared with the Mondeo forum. Perhaps they're not as bad? What year was your Astra that had the issues? Surely they should've rectified the design fault by now.

    What makes me optimistic is when googling, mondeo tdci dmf brings back 61000 results whereas astra cdti dmf brings back 61 results. Hopefully not as bad!

    my 1st was a 55 plate, when stationary, press and depress the clutch, at the biting point, listen for a rattle! (when out of gear)

    Yeah, they have a DMF. Not so problematic as the Mondeo's one, but it can give trouble on remapped/boxed cars.

    Found this to be particularly useful - bulletins 14-16 in particular

    Looks like the 2.0 and 2.2 DTi are the main ones with problems. Phew!

    The dual mass flywheel on the Astra is not a major point of concern, my car is a year old and has just clocked over 30,000 miles and it is a sweet as a nut.

    The early pre-facelift Vectra 1.9's had DMF issues, but these appear to have been cleared up on the facelift cars.
