What is the clutch?
It’s the mechanism for connecting and disconnecting an engine and the transmission system in a vehicle, or the working parts of any machine. In the simplest application, clutches connect and disconnect two rotating shafts (drive shafts or line shafts). In these devices, one shaft is typically attached to an engine or other power unit (the driving member) while the other shaft (the driven member) provides output power for work. While typically the motions involved are rotary, linear clutches are also possible.
Is your clutch failing?
How to tell if clutch is going bad?
While driving down the road in 3rd gear, put the car in 2nd gear, then let out the clutch. If the RPMs of the engine don't immediately go up, it may be time to replace the clutch. Also you may hear noises when changing gears, or perhaps that feeling of something just isn't right? Our trained technicians will conduct a comprehensive check on your car's clutch system to provide you with ultimate peace of mind.
What Does Replacement Involve?
What does replacing the clutch involve?
The high labour charge for repairing clutch faults is accounted for by the fact that the operation often also requires the vehicle’s gearbox to be removed first. The clutch replacement itself also must be carried out in distinct removal and re-fitting phases.
