What is a Clutch?
The clutch is a device in your car that connects the engine to its gearbox (and, thus, to the wheels.) It is engaged or disengaged to allow you to change gear. Every car needs a clutch because the engine spins all the time, but wheels do not. The clutch gives the ability to disconnect the engine from the gearbox and wheels. As a clutch pad is designed to wear over time, it has a shorter lifespan than other car parts. With sensible driving and good car maintenance, a clutch pad should last for just over seven years. Below, you will find out the most important points about clutch change.
Signs that your Clutch needs Replacing or Repairing
- Clutch Chatter
Chattering occurs when the clutch is being used and a grabbing or jerking can be felt in the vehicle.
- Clutch Noise
If you are hearing strange noises like growls or squeals, this can be another sign of a problem with a clutch, as vibrations within the part would cause such sounds.
If you hear any strange noises coming from your car, have it looked at immediately as a fault with your clutch could cause serious danger while you are driving.
- Burning Smell
If you can smell something burning while you drive it is essential that you stop the car and ensure you are safe.
