XI clutch vibrate when upshift and down shift!

What part it could be? clutch, bearing, pressure plate or flywheel?

- noise when i am in neutral and I press on the clutch
- sometime vibrate when upshifting
- sometime vibrate when downshifting

driveshaft? Could be a cracked guido, the rubber coupling connecting the transmission output shaft to the drive shaft.

Sorry, GUIBO, not guido. I tend to make fun of that subculture too much.

I juste went to the dealer! and they said it could be the dual-mass flywheel, maybe this one was loose (due to milage) 180 000km or 112 000 miles

That is not going to be a cheap job to fix. I am thinking 2 grand if a dealer fixes the problem.

yes! this will be not cheap! they have a pakage with labor, clutch, bearing and presure plate for 750$CAN

If I need a flywheel this will be 750$ + 1150$ = 1900$
