Mondeo Wobble/Vibration

I have a 2008 Mondeo that has done 45,000 miles.

Recently I have noticed a wobble/virbation in the car when idling only. It seems to smooth out at speed. I have taken it to the dealer once to get it checked under warranty and also for a service, both times the dealership have said there is no issue.

I'm not convinced and have heard that Mondeos have had problems with the fly wheel in the past though im now not sure what to do as the dealer has seen it twice. I also have a diesel BMW 1 series and there is no noticable movement when that idles? Any suggestions?

It's possible that the DMF is starting to fail, yes. As that happens it affects the flywheel sensor and anything that depends on timing from it.
