Understanding how a clutch works
The clutch is composed of three essential elements – the pressure plate, flywheel and clutch plate. Once engaged, springs in the mechanism join the parts together, linking the motor to an axle which then provides motion to your wheels.
When you press down on the clutch pedal, the springs pull the pressure plate away from the clutch plate. This stops the connection between the engine and the wheels that are rotating through their own momentum allowing you to change gears smoothly.
How do I know I need clutch repairs or a new clutch?
As with most vehicle components, regular use of the clutch can result in wear and tear which will eventually lead to certain issues that need addressing. While a clutch can last anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000 miles, certain driving habits can significantly reduce that, such as resting your foot on the pedal and leaving your car in gear when parked.
To avoid breaking down and spending a fortune on potentially serious issues, it’s important to know the most common signs that you may need clutch repairs or a replacement:
- Clutch slipping is the most common with issues such as struggling to drive forward at low speeds in a high gear and difficulty going uphill in a high gear
- Clutch is squealing or making ‘growling’ noises
- Burning smell coming from the clutch
- A soft or spongy clutch
- A noisy clutch pedal
- Rattling or grinding sound when changing gears
