How do we remanufacture dual mass flywheels?
Often you inquire what involves the reconditioning (remanufacturing) procedure with dual mass flywheels
Successful dual mass flywheel repair is incumbent on the degree of damage of the part when we receive it.
Furthermore, our technicians work according to a number of strict procedures when remanufacturing dual mass flywheels.
Disassembled parts of a dual mass flywheel are placed in a pressure washer. The washer produces water steam with as much as 180 ° C of temperature, which in return ascertains that the washer meticulously rids the respective dual mass flywheels parts of grease and smudge.
After careful cleaning in a pressure washer the parts are subjected to a sandblasting procedure. At this point, the remains of old paint, corrosion, and stains are removed.
In the next phase our specialists determined which parts of a particular dual mass flywheel should be replaced. Once the part has been inspected and decision made, the dual mass flywheel is assembled using spare parts of the highest quality available on the market. We exclusively use components from original manufacturers including Sachs, Valeorespe, and LuK
Grinding and Sanding
The process of sanding serves to even out and smoothen out all the imperfections to make sure that the dual mass flywheel is balanced out correctly.
Among the final steps in the dual mass flywheel remanufacturing process is the part assembly into correct position and correct order. The dual mass flywheel parts are put back together using rivets.
The completion of remanufacturing process is not all there is to it. Once the dual mass flywheel has been assembled, it is necessary to carefully test it. One of the testing drills is dynamic balancing which eliminates any unwanted vibrations in its function.
What are the benefits in dual mass flywheel remanufacturing as opposed to buying a brand-new part?
Dual mass flywheel remanufacturing is certainly more financially attractive. The customer is effectively paying substantially less for the quality of a brand-new part.
What are the common symptoms of dual mass flywheel failure?
- characteristic pounding from the transmission area
- engine vibrations palpable in vehicle cabin when idle running
- irregular engine flow
- characteristic tugging during acceleration
- issues with gear switching while driving
The substantial wear and tear of dual mass flywheels is often caused by careless drivers themselves. There is a number of useful habits which can significantly extend its working span. Namely:
- moderate continuous pressing on the clutch pedal when engine is running
- avoid driving in high gear while having low engine revolution – under revving engine
- smooth acceleration – avoid accelerating abruptly
- maximum chip tuning
DISCLAIMER: Upon having your dual mass flywheel remanufactured, we always recommend replacing your clutch set with a new one from the same manufacturer like the dual mass flywheel.
