Hi Mike, I can't really help with this, but I am surprised Mazda aren't interested in investigating the cause. They usually want to know why these things happen. From what I understand the most common cause is high torque, like towing heavy loads or driving in a gear that is too high. At least they could have eliminated those issues by plugging in there diagnostic tool and downloading the information from the on board computer.

A quick search on the web re dual mass flywheel failures pulls up failures from all marques so I'm not so sure it's just Mazda (although the 6 seems to have more than some?).... Why change something that has worked well?! (ie a standard clutch)

While I sympathize. I along with many others I know have had to replace a duel mass flywheel along with clutch at around 50k. It's pretty commonn and not unique to Mazda. Virtually all diesels have them now for better experience. What ever u do don't fit a custom solid flywheel replacement as it will be horrible 😉 this is one of reasons I drive an auto as new flywheel every 50k mounts up.
