When it comes to servicing your car, HiQ Abingdon can offer you the premium service you'd expect from a main dealer - without the premium price tag. This means you can reduce your servicing costs without compromising your warranty. Our Warranty Approved Servicing is carried out by highly trained technicians using parts and lubricants that match those specified as Original Equipment. This ensures compliance with the Manufacturers Warranty, so the only difference you'll notice is in your wallet.

As well as great value for money, you can expect a thorough and fair service. At HiQ Abingdon we use a traffic light system in our servicing, which outlines what work needs doing, and how urgently it needs to be done. When a green light is ticked on your servicing report, the job has been auctioned and the problem is visually ok. If the amber light it ticked, we suggest that you take action when you can. If the red light is ticked the problem requires urgent action and we would highly recommend that the problem is rectified as soon as possible. An MOT test checks that vehicles meet the road safety and environmental standards required by law. All cars over 3 years old require an MOT test every 12 months. Without a current MOT certificate, you will be unable to drive your vehicle lawfully or renew your road fund license. You can have an MOT test completed up to one month before the expiry of your current MOT without affecting your annual expiry date. You can find the earliest date to MOT your vehicle on the front of your last pass certificate. And don't forget to bring your Vehicle Registration Document (V5) with you on the day of the test.

As tyre experts, we think it's only right to share our in-depth experience with our customers. That's why we've collected a few tyre tips for you. By following the advice below, you'll find that your tyres will go much further, saving you time and money along the way. Make sure your tyres are always at the correct pressure - refer to your car handbook for more information. Check your tyres regularly for any obvious signs of under-inflation, wear, cuts and bulges in the sidewalls, plus remove any stones or other foreign objects trapped in the tread grooves. Have the steering alignment checked if front tyres show signs of excessive or uneven wear. Have front wheels and tyres balanced if there are signs of vibration, wheel wobble or patchy tyre wear. Drive with consideration for your tyres by avoiding harsh braking, fierce acceleration and fast cornering. If you're in doubt about your tyres, don't worry. Just call in to see us and ask for your free, no-obligation tyre check.

Clutch Replacement in Oxford
Frequently asked questions
+

How much is a Oxford Clutch Replacement?

A clutch is a sophisticated component containing friction plates and, sometimes, a dual-mass flywheel, for smooth running. The replacement process can be quite lengthy, depending on make and model. Our average Clutch Replacement in Oxford is £350 to £400.
+

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 Oxford garages collect the car from my home?

Yes. If your car isn't driveable because the clutch is too worn (or for another reason), garages in Oxford can generally collect your car to repair it, at little or no extra cost.
+

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.

Clutch Replacement Explained

Clutch replacement is one of the most common repairs carried out by mechanics in the UK as the nature of the part means it will naturally degrade over time, regardless of how much care you take or precautions you put in place.

The rate of degradation will alter from car model to car model as each are designed differently with some cars having significantly superior parts.

However, the way somebody drives a car is a huge factor in how a clutch performs. We will go onto this in more detail further down the guide and will demonstrate what you should be doing to elongate the lifespan of your clutch.

What is a clutch?

The Clutch is the part of your car engine which is responsible for engaging and disengaging the power transmission.

It’s a vital part of an engine and is essentially there to connect two parts of the system that can’t make a car move unless they're connected. Clutches engage and disengage two rotating shafts which then allow your car to move.

When you press the clutch down and move your car into gear, you are connecting the two shafts and transitioning from one gear to the next.

Its an essential function which allows a car to move through gears effectively and efficiently.

Automatic cars have an in-built clutch which takes over the control of this interchange, this means that the car itself decides what gear you should be in depending on the driving conditions regardless of the driver.

What are the signs of a damaged clutch on a ?

There are a variety of signs to look out for when it comes to an underperforming clutch as the performance of your car will be noticeably effected as well as your ability to change gears.

Here are the most common issues which will be caused by a damaged clutch.

    Slipping Clutch

    Slipping is one of the most common clutch issues and can cause a drop in performance, as well as damage, if not diagnosed in time.

    The things you need to watch out for are;

  • Your car struggles to move forward while moving at a low speed in a high gear.
  • Your car struggles to get up hills in a high gear
  • Your car struggles to accelerate or finds it difficult to tow a trailer
  • The problem with a slipping clutch is that it will only get worse as time goes on. Slippage increases the heat generated in between the two shafts and the hotter this area becomes the less able it is to maintain its grip, therefore increasing the slippage. The greater the slippage the greater the heat generated.

    So it’s clear to see that this is an issue that will only get worse if left without attention.

    Clutch Chatter

    Chattering occurs when the clutch is being used and a grabbing or jerking can be felt in the vehicle.

    This problem is caused by the following internal clutch issues;

  • A warped or grooved flywheel
  • Missing flywheel dowel pins
  • A worn piolet bearing/bushing
  • A worn bearing retainer
  • Worn or damaged clutch disc or input shaft splines
  • Bent or broken drive straps
  • A bent or distorted clutch disc
  • A loose clutch cover
  • Clutch linings becoming covered in oil grease or getting burned or glazed
  • Chatter can also be caused by other faults in the engine;
  • Loose/broken engine or transmission mounts
  • Misalignment of the chassis and drivetrain components
  • Worn or damaged U-joints/CV joints
  • A loose transmission cross member
  • A worn or bent release fork
  • A loose rear left spring brushing or spring U-bolt nuts
  • 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.

    How long will clutch replacement take on my ?

    Replacing a clutch can take as little as a few hours or as longs as a few days depending on the car and garage.

    Many cars will have easy access to the clutch and so replacing the part will be straightforward however others will be more complex and will need other parts removing before the mechanic can get to the clutch.

    How much will a new clutch cost for my ?

    Once more, a new clutch will cost different amounts depending on the car. You could be paying £250 or £600 from car to car or garage to garage, that is why it is so important to get a range of quotes from garages in your local area.

    Fortunately replacing a clutch is one of the most common repair jobs carried out by mechanics in the UK which means you will be able to find a range of quotes from garages in your local area as it will be a job they are all well practiced in completing.

    Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy which is why we simplified the process.
