NO,when the dual mass flywheel goes you will feel it.starter motor jamming is normally down to worn teeth/release spring.

To remove crankshaft pulley


no easy way, yopu will need a air impact 1/2" drive. Unles you can get to the flywheel and jam it, or even take the starter out and jam it. with a pry bar or something.

no, it shouldnt have any looseness to it and dual mass flywheels are VERY expensive to replace, BUT yes it can be converted to a solid flywheel, check out autozone.com part number MU1989 or advanceautoparts.com part number 798, that should get you on the right path to curing your problems, i welded the two independantly turning discs of my dual mass flywheel together but i wouldnt recommend anyone doing that without the proper equipment to do so (i.e. precision lathes, cast iron welding rods, etc)

The best thing to do is to take it to a transmission shop and ask them. They will be able to tell you if it is bad. This is the cheapest way to find out if it is bad and you can ask them how to tell for future knowledge.

2003 Tiburon 6 spd clutch replacement now tranny won't respond


Possibility, you may have intalled the clutch disk backwards.... if so, the disk hub is torqued against the crankshaft hub preventing engagement of the clutch. 2003 TIBUORN DUAL MASS FLYWHEEL AND CLUTCH DISC ASSEMBLY INSTALLATION PROCEDURE DESCRIPTION: The 2003 MY 2.7L Tiburon vehicle equipped with the 6-speed manual transaxle employs a dual mass flywheel system. The 2003 Tiburon Shop Manual does not show the clutch disc assembly with the dual mass flywheel. This bulletin provides information about how to assemble these components. NOTE Although it is possible to assemble the clutch disc with either side facing the flywheel surface, only the assembly of these two parts shown in this bulletin is correct.
PARTS ASSEMBLY:
  1. Attach the dual mass flywheel to the engine crankshaft assembly.
  2. Identify the clutch disc flange side and the collar side as shown. 0240025a.gif
  3. Install the collar side of the clutch disc on the dual mass flywheel surface so that the flange side is facing the pressure plate side as shown. 0240025b.gif
  4. Attach the pressure plate to the dual mass flywheel and complete assembly of the remaining components per the Shop Manual procedures. 0240025c.gif

New starter does not work


The spring on the starter motor helix is either stuck or broke, or the starter gear is jammed in the flywheel gear.

Take the cover off the starter motor and you can see the flywheel, starter gear, spring and helix shaft.

If its just stuck, free it up and spray some WD40 in there.

If the gear was jammed into the flywheel teeth then check for damage and wear. They are made from quite a soft metal and burrs can easily be filed and removed.

The "clunk" you are hearing is probably the starter solinoid. If you think its a more mechanical sound than that, it could be the starter taking up slack against a jammed gear.

If the engine runs file on a pull start, its unlikely to be a jammed gear/flywheel and more likely the spring is broke or the gear is stuck at the base of the helix.

If its none of those things and the clunk is the solinoid, then you will have to check to see if 12v is getting to the starter motor. If so, it might actually be the motor.

So, in order of likelyhood/checking:

1) spring stuck or broke
2) Gear jammed on helix
3) solonoid <-> motor electrics
4) gear jammed on flywheel

Its a good idea to keep in working - very sensible.
