What is the Clutch Replacement Procedure

There are a number of steps to be taken when replacing a clutch, and accessing the clutch housing can often take significant time in itself. Once the old clutch has been removed, the crankshaft is cleaned. the flywheel should then be positioned at the top of the flange and the bolts tightened. Next, the clutch disk and the clutch pressure plate are installed, followed by a new release bearing and the release fork. Next, the clutch is realigned with the engine. The clutch and bell housing are reinstalled, followed by replacing all components removed to make room. Finally the clutch cable is replaced or adjusted as necessary.

Can Newcastle upon Tyne garages collect the car from my home?

Is Clutch Replacement covered by warranty?
This is a tricky area. If you have a warranty - when you bought the car, or taken out separately - it's important to check the small print. It is often the case that a warranty covering the clutch will cover any form of major 'mechanical failure' but not wear to the friction plates themselves. In short: make sure to check the terms of your warranty carefully.

How can I prolong the life of my clutch?
Once you've had your new clutch fitted, you'll want to ensure it lasts as long as possible. A couple of pointers: when you're at rest in your car, make sure to put the car in neutral, and take your foot away from the clutch completely. Even lightly resting your foot on the clutch can increase wear. When you change gear, make sure to do so smoothly, without over-revving the engine. Finally, once you've changed gear, remove your foot completely from the clutch pedal - make sure not to 'ride' the clutch after a gearchange.

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.

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.
  • Burning Smell
  • If you can smell something burning while you drive it is essential that you stop the car and ensure you are safe.
