    Post Mahindra SUV 500 clutch and dual mass flywheel replacement

    My Mahindra 2012 SUV 500, has been taken to Mahindra for assessment after did not want to change gears. The dealer said that I must replace its clutch kit, concentric and dual mass flywheel- cost of R 30 000 including R4000 labour. I could not afford the cost, so the question is:

    * Do you have to replace the dual mass flywheel?
    * Can you skeem it?
    Where can I get cheaper the clutch kit flywheel?

    The best thing is to try and find somebody who makes a SMF: Single Mass Flywheel as per the old school design.
    However, your engine will then transmit much more vibration via the drivetrain which could damage the gearbox in the long term.

    You can't skim or refurbish a dual mass flywheel as far as I know.

    Good luck.

    Can I fit a second hand dual flywheel from second stores with a new clutch kit?

    Only Mahindra can tell you that.

    Have you checked if LUK or others make a non-OEM clutch kit and DMF?

    I suspect there is nothing wrong with the DM flywheel. Let clutch & brake place check it out. What is your mileage?
    Normally only the clutch kit need replacement. Try MPDSA, they are importers for Indian & Chinese vehicle parts.

    Try to stay away from agents. They are overpriced with most items.
    The quoted me a horrendous price on the centre console - which is a cheap piece of plastic.

    The mileage is 79 000 and I am the only driver, given that I bought it in 2012 October.

    Take it to a reputable clutch workshop for evaluation, it is not supposed to be shot at that mileage - depending on the treatment it got (regular towing of caravan etc.)

    You can, but will have no warrantee on the clutch kit. They have to be replaced together for the warrantee to be intact.

    Fitting a clutch (under normal curcumstances) to an old, or unskimmed, flywheel usually causes a shudder upon pull away.

    Masterparts have kits including a flywheel on some vehicles for around R7k IIRC, but I am glad it worked out for you.
