What Causes Clutches to Fail?

When you release your foot off the clutch pedal the clutch plate is pushed against the flywheel. The clutch plate is covered in high friction material, similar to a brake disk, this simply put makes the speed of the wheels match the speed of the engine. This high friction material wears out eventually which causes the clutch plate and flywheel to rub together and damage each other. If the clutch friction material is worn out then the clutch will “slip” which means that the clutch is not engaging properly. This is the most common failure that clutches suffer. Though the life of clutch can be extended through good clutch control once the clutch starts to fail you can bring it round to our team of expert mechanics to give your clutch service to give you the peace of mind you need.

Signs that you clutch needs a service

There are warning signs that you clutch might need a service. Most clutches are designed to last anywhere between 50,000 and 100,000 miles. However, there are many factors that can affect this and can reduce this dramatically. Even if you do a lot of City driving it can wear the clutch a lot quicker. The first sign is a spongy, sticking, vibrating or loose clutch pedal when pressed. Then next is any noises when the clutch is pressed like a squeak or grumble. If the gears grind and if you find it hard to get into gear. If you feel the clutch “slipping” at any point.
