Is250 clutch judder (another one)

Recommended Posts

Hi

I've had my '08 is250 for a while now and as a first time lexus owner I absolutely love it. 

I've noticed in the last few weeks I get a slight clutch judder when pulling away from a stopped position. I've looked into this online and found alot of people finding their flywheels at fault. 

I can only find old information and old posts on this and wondered if anyone has found a more up to date cost effective way to fix this problem? 

My car is 130k miles and I don't think I could stomach spend £2k on a 11 year old car. 

What would you guys do?

Hi Rob,

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a simple way to diagnose this issue.

The most likely culprit is the flywheel, and as I am sure you are aware, the only way to confirm is to remove it.

My 220d had a judder which turned out to be engine mounts, but the technician that discovered the fault was very surprised.  In fact, at that point they had already changed the flywheel because it was assumed to be the source of the problem.

Sorry, but it is not looking very promising I am afraid.

Hi shahpor, did you replace with a Oem dual mass flywheel or a after market solid one?

The replacement was an OEM flywheel.  It was actually done under warranty, so the part was supplied by the dealer.  I also purchased a new clutch to be fitted at the same time.
