Clutch

 

What is a clutch kit and how it works in a car?


Clutch is located between the engine and gearbox. When the Clutch is engaged engine power is transmitted to the wheels through the transmission system and in the result of this, the vehicle starts moving. 
The clutch consists of three components:
 
1) A solid metal clutch disc         
2) Pressure plate       
3) Release bearing
 
When the clutch paddle is pushed down on the floor the hydraulic clutch fluid in the release bearing transmit the pressure to the clutch disc with the help of pressure plate in the result clutch disc is pushed against the flywheel which is directly connected to the crankshaft, in turn, means that no drive is transferred to the gearbox and driveshaft, allowing for a gear change to be made.

 

What are the Symptoms of a faulty or worn clutch?

  1. Spongy, sticking, vibrating or loose clutch pedal when pressed.
  2. Squeaking or grumbling noise when pressed.
  3. Ability to rev the engine, but poor acceleration.
  4. Difficulty shifting gear.
  5. The car doesn’t move at all.

How long will a clutch last?

It's a difficult question to answer really, as it all depends on your driving style. Most clutches are designed to last approximately 60,000 miles before they need to be replaced. Some may need replacing at 30,000 and some others can keep going well over 100,000 miles, but this is fairly uncommon.

What happens if faulty Clutch is not replaced on time?

Clutch plays a very important role in transmitting the engine power to the wheels hence it is in constant use, beyond a certain point of wear the clutch will start to slip. Its the best time to change the clutch when you feel any of the above-mensioned symptoms, prolonged driving with a faulty clutch increases the chances of causing damage to your transmission and flywheel. If the clutch worns out to the extent where it starts slipping when you put your foot down on the accelerator your car won't roll at all and you end up recovering your vehicle to the workshop. It's in your best interest to drive it to the garage for clutch replacement or book mobile mechanic rather than putting yourself into a situation where you need a recovery service to get to the workshop.
