The DMF or dual mass flywheel is fitted to make the clutch actuation smoother & because of the large amount of torque the CDTI engine produces so I believe, please correct if i'm wrong anybody

It dampens engine pulses of the pistons.
The higher the engine torque and the lower the number of cylinders the greater the pulse.
The engines more stable at higher rpm but at low rpm they make a world of difference.

I've got a 2006 2.2 CDTi. The clutch slips (mainly) if I load the engine whilst moving, say for example accelerating from about 50MPH in 5th gear.

So far as I'm aware it's a standard EX and hasn't been chipped. It's done 80k. I was thinking of trying for a good will warranty claim but doubt this will wash with Honda. Should I simply replace the clutch or should I consider the DMF at the same time? I don't really fancy splashing the best part of a grand on the car :(

How is anyone supposed to get their vehicle to Leeds if their clutch is already rooted

Just askin

I believe it's a case of the slipping getting worse and worse when you boot it under load at around the peak torque area. I have read on these here boards of people going for months like this before replacing so it sounds if you're sensible with the clutch you can still get plenty of miles out of it still before you're stuffed.
