DMF needs replacing.....

I have just got a 2006 320d touring. It didn't cost me a lot but I am still not pleased to have detected a rattle when changing gear plus clutch judder when hot.
So I am assuming it is going to need a new clutch plus DMF.
I'll be doing it myself so any advice before I dive in?
Should I be ordering anything other than a DMF, clutch kit and exhaust gaskets?
Also, (bear in mind I am new to BMWs) is there any way of telling which paticular DMF I need (there appear to be a lot of part numbers) other than pulling the old one out before buying the new one?
Lastly, anyone gone to a solid flywheel? If so, any downsides? (eg rougher changes etc?)
Oh, and how heavy is the gearbox? Is it a one man lift on my back on my drive or will I need to get help?

I think that is all the questions for the moment but I am sure there will be more ;-)

The gearbox isn't that heavy, you should be able to handle it. You might want to change the gearbox oil while ur @ it. You need new bolts for the DMF as they should not be reused.

Ok. Thanks. I will put gear oil and bolts on the list. Even doing it myself this is not going to be cheap...

You are probably a bit too far north to use A1 Clutches, but I would recommend them.

They quoted around 350 for the clutch to be replaced.
During the actual replacement, they phoned to say the DMF really needed replacement as well. (No surprise there, as I had clutch judder on occasions).

Total price was 730
That was done in just less than a day and included a courtesy car.

2011 325d LCI at ~ 95k miles, now done 125k with no issues.

Assuming that is A1 clutches in Poole then yes, a bit too far away for me. I think I will be doing this myself anyway as, being a rear drive car it looks a fairly easy job (famous last words....).
That price looks pretty reasonable though considering the price of the parts.
