WHAT IS A CLUTCH?
The clutch is the device that connects your car’s engine to its gearbox (and, thus, to the wheels.) It is engaged or disengaged to allow you to change gear. You need one because your engine spins all the time, but your wheels do not. The clutch gives you the ability to disconnect the engine from the gearbox and wheels.
HOW DOES A CLUTCH WORK?
In a car’s clutch, a flywheel connects to the engine, and a clutch plate connects to the transmission. When your foot is off the clutch pedal, the flywheel and clutch plate are pressed together, connecting the engine to the gearbox, and they spin at the same speed. When the pedal is pressed, the plate and flywheel are disconnected, allowing you to change gear.
CAN A CLUTCH BE REPAIRED?
That depends on what the issue is. If the clutch plate is worn – usually indicated by a ‘slipping’ clutch or tough gear change, it needs to be replaced. However it may be that the issue can be resolved by nothing more than adjusting the clutch cable.
HOW MUCH DOES A CLUTCH REPAIR COST?
This depends on your vehicle: while the clutch itself is typically not expensive, time and care is required in removing, replacing and testing a clutch. Some cars’ clutches are harder to access than others, increasing the labour hours involved.
