2007 Astra Van. Clutch Vibration.

This van came in with a very bad clutch judder when pulling away and vibration at speed.
On removing gearbox and inspecting dual mass flywheel and clutch we were amazed that the motor was still able to be driven.

                      This picture shows how far off centre the fly wheel had worn
Dual Mass rivets had to be drilled out and outer part of flywheel removed to allow access to crankshaft bolts.

                          This picture shows the amount of wear on the outer part of flywheel. After replacing the complete flywheel and clutch assembly the motor was judder and vibration free. If the customer had had the van looked at when he first noticed a problem it would have saved him a lot of expense.
