    About Single Mass Flywheel’s:Single Mass Flywheel

    A Single Mass Flywheel is an energy storage device in manual transmissions. A single mass flywheel is a single component which comes directly in contact with the clutch plate. Single mass flywheel are used to dampen vibration but often are not as good as Dual mass Flywheel, hence the cheaper price tag. Single mass flywheels are commonly used because of its cheaper price tag, and can be repaired easily by resurfacing. They are also sometimes used to convert from a Dual Mass Flywheel to lower the cost of a major clutch replacement.

     

    Causes of a Damaged Single Mass Flywheel:

    Wear and Tear: It is normal for a single mass flywheel to wear out overtime. This is due to the constant friction with clutch, and the constant vibration.

    Burning and scoring: if the old clutch has been slipping for a period of time this can damage the clutch plate flywheel surface

    Bad driving: If you use the clutch and accelerator pedal to help adjust your speed, this will lead to your flywheel wearing out much faster, as you will be constantly slipping your clutch and producing heat from friction.

     

    Symptoms of a Damaged Single Mass Flywheel:

    Vibration: Excessive vibration in the floor and clutch pedal could indicate a damaged flywheel. You may also feel vibration when changing gears and in the gear stick.

    Burning Smell – If you smell a burning smell, it could be due excessive heat of the flywheel. This could be because of wear and tear or clutch driving. This is when you use the clutch pedal with the gas pedal to control your speed or to slow down. If you’re worried about burning smells in or around you’re car it could also be due to your clutch.
