Clutch Replacement

Different vehicle sport different clutches, and not all of them will last forever. The streets of a busy city like Cardiff can be hard on a well-worn clutch, and time spent stilling one’s vehicle at an intersection can wear down even the newest and strongest clutches.

A clutch is an important part of a vehicle, required for its proper functioning. If a clutch is damaged, especially to the point of needing replacement, the vehicle’s owner has a good chance of noticing early.

When performing a replacement, a responsible garage does not just replace the clutch, it also ensures that there are no negative changes to the vehicle as a result. The process of replacing clutches can sometimes be difficult:

  • Depending on the layout of the vehicle, the process differs. For front-wheel drive vehicles, the engine or transaxle may have to be moved. On a rear-wheel drive vehicle, various parts have to be removed from underneath the vehicle’s back end.
  • Other parts may need to be removed, such as the vehicle’s electrical battery, to access the clutch or for the safety of the vehicle or repairman.
  • A replacement clutch must be able to stand up to the same wear and tear as the previous clutch, if not more. As some vehicles may have clutches which last 100,000 miles or more, a proper replacement clutch can be expensive.

Use an experienced mechanic

It is possible to replace your clutch on your own, if you have the shop manual for your car available (in order to follow the necessary, vehicle-specific instructions). As the damage to a vehicle caused by a failed clutch replacement attempt can cost many times more than paying for the replacement otherwise, though, this is not recommended.
