Screech When Taking Off

Hi everybody.

Whenever I take off from the lights there is an almighty screech before the clutch pedal is completley lifted.

I've heard this is a problem with the dual mass flywheel and is a fairly common issue.

Are there any quick fixes or anything that can help as I understand these are not cheap to replace.

Thanks

Sounds like the clutch release bearing need replacing. They can screech like that. Bit like a fanbelt noise but worse!

Not heard it being the flywheel, but at least the bearing is cheaper! However, you may as well replace the clutch too if taking it all apart to change the bearing! That then puts the cost up!

Thanks for the reply, I had a new clutch put in a couple of months ago would the bearing not have been changed then?
