I purchased a brand new Dual Mass Flywheel which arrived today. The clutch kit is arriving tomorrow. When I opened the carton box I saw that the DmF has some rust on the surface. In my doubts to return it back, I sought an opinion at a local mechanic. He said that the rust at this particular place does not cause any problem as the clutch disk does not lay on it. He added that there were cases when their shop received such peaces (with rust). I'm in doubts should I mount it on the car or not!! How do I now it doesn't have rusted springs or elsewhere inside it?!!! I'm supposed to replace these parts next week at a local mechanic in the area.
Please check the video on the link below and tell me what your opinion is. I really appreciate your assistance and I thank you in advance.

Thanks for your answer GGray. It has already been fitted, and the new clutch kit too. It is working fine, very smooth and pleasant feel.
