WHAT IS A CLUTCH?

A clutch is a disc made up of round metal plate with friction material riveted or bonded onto each side. This friction material grips to flywheel and pressure plate when the clutch is engaged to provide drive from engine to the gearbox. It also allows the engine and transmission to be disconnected from each other, to allow the engine to run without providing drive, such as when the driver places their foot on the clutch or the gearbox is in neutral. This also allows for smooth gear changes when the vehicle in motion. 

SYMPTOMS OF FAILING CLUTCH COMPONENTS 

  • Hard to select gears
  • Engine RPM increasing with no increase in vehicle speed
  • Burning smell from vehicle
  • Clutch pedal not returning
  • Unable to depress clutch pedal
  • Shudder when changing gears  

WHY IT'S IMPORTANT TO HAVE YOUR CLUTCH INSPECTED OR REPLACED 

Having your clutch system inspected and repaired is virtually important for the safety of you, your family and other motorists around you.

If you continue to operate your vehicle with a failing clutch, it may leave you stranded on the side of the road with no drive, or leave you unable to accelerate properly, making you a danger to other motorists. 

Ignoring the warning signs can also lead to expensive repair bills, as further damage may caused by continuing to operate your vehicle with an issue.
