Every dual mass I've pulled out has been replaced with a single, no problems every after that.
:agree: I've done about 20 like that and had no issues

Find a new dealer! Someone is feeding you a line, and changing to a SMF is probably one of the smartest things you can do. Not only is it a better design, but also a slightly larger clutch.

some one is pulling your chain,like said before , single mass is the only way to go, ive probably installed 40 at ford and at least half that many at my shop, and never had any issues, for half the price on top of that , luk makes a good kit and there are others as well, the whole kit costs half or a little more than a dual mass flywheel by itself

I've been running a single for 40k and have no problems. It runs just as smooth as a new dual-mass unit and will last way longer. No stupid springs to fly away with a single. Do it and don't look back!

There is truth to the fact you dont want to put in a solid flywheel and keep the stock clutch the transmission will ratlle like nonother been there done that. If you buy a aftermarket kit ie flywheel and clutch together you should be fine but if you leep your stoke clutch and add the solid flywheel you have no way to dampen the engine each time a cylinder fires.

Do the Dual Mass Flywheel really loose springs? I have seen it mentioned a few places over the last year but when I ask what happens if you loose a spring I get no answer.

I have a klunk in my 6 speed that the dealer says is normal and an independent garage says is not in the drive line behind the transmission. Just curious if it could be the flywheel and if I should care.

Havn't really heard of the DMF loosing springs. I have seen them wear out and have slack. The Clutch disk are someone common about dropping springs.
