Clutch Replacement

The clutch is one of the most important components of your vehicle's transmission system. It is responsible for engaging and disengaging the power from the engine to the transmission, allowing you to shift gears and control your vehicle's speed. However, like any other mechanical component, the clutch can wear out over time and require replacement.

What are the symptoms of a damaged clutch?

  • Difficulty Shifting Gears: A damaged clutch can make it difficult to shift gears, particularly when going from a standstill or when changing gears at higher speeds.
  • Clutch Slipping: If the clutch is slipping, it will cause the engine to rev higher than usual, even if you're not accelerating as quickly as before.
  • Noisy Clutch: A damaged clutch can produce unusual noises, such as grinding or squealing sounds when engaging or disengaging the clutch.
  • Vibration: A damaged clutch can cause your vehicle to vibrate or shake, particularly when idling.

The average lifespan of a manual clutch or a DSG clutch depends on how the vehicle is driven. When it is properly cared for, a clutch can last for 250,000 KM . If you feel that your clutch is nearing the end of its life, you should get it replaced to ensure that your car continues to change gears smoothly.
