Question acceleration judder

We have had a 52 plate 115jtd elx for 18 months now and have found it to be a super family car. The last couple of weeks the car has developed a bad knock and vibration while accelerating, is ok if gentle between 2-2.5k revs, and the vibration returns above 2.5k revs. Our independant garage has made the normal checks for mis-fire, engine management, shafts, dirty fuel etc and can only suggest a problem with the dual mass flywheel. He is not totally convinced of this and can only check through removal of the gearbox!!. I cannot find info on anyone having had a similar problem and am concerned to do this bearing in mind it has only covered 40k. Can anyone help?

Thanks for reading

Peter

Re: acceleration judder

Had the gearbox removed yesterday, it seems the Dual mass flywheel had failed internally giving a 30 deg movement, the release bearing has also welded itself to the clutch!! new flywheel, clutch and bearing fitted today, 10/10 to Barge Motors Yeovil for correct identification and rectification of the fault-will definitely use them again.
