Hi Guys,

Need some help from you pros again!

The car is a '07 MkV R32 DSG

Took out the engine and separated my DSG gearbox from it yesterday because i'm going to change the chains(rattling) and on the same time put in my schrick camshafts(wrooom)...

My friend that helps me noticed that the DMF had play up/down and right/left and not just clock/counterclockwise.
We think it might have to be changed, and that it might have had a role in the rattling noise i've had,

So here's what i know and what i do wanna know!

My car is a Late 07, in Jan 08 VW started to put in a new version of the DMF in the gearbox.
You guys say that those who had noise problems with DMF noise got them back just weeks after installing a new one?

If im going to change it, what alternative brands is there to choose from? Sachs?

Thought about the SO expensive renewed OEM DMF?

SMF isn't an option!

Best Regards

Viktor

DSG DMF's are made of chocolate. Anyway, latest revision has this P/N 022105266AK.

You could but imo for how much me and Redemption have had them out under VW warranty i think its worth every penny to get the OEM one and use their 2 year parts* labour warranty

The OEM flywheel is made by LUK. As long as you get the correct P/N you'll be fine. Some places are cheaper than others. I got my last one from Skoda.
