How do I know if I require a new clutch?
A working clutch is essential for the ongoing smooth operation of your car and is a part that is in almost constant use when driving. It can be difficult to know when the general wear and tear of driving is beginning to impact upon its function and there are no strict guidelines about the lifespan of a clutch.
The factors that will have the greatest impact upon a clutch’s lifespan are the conditions in which it is driven and the driving style of the driver. As an example, some drivers develop a habit of ‘riding’ the clutch when sitting in traffic or at traffic lights – this habit stops the plates of the clutch from disengaging completely and can cause significant wearing to the clutch.
There are a few signs to watch out for that give you an indication that your clutch is wearing out or beginning to fail.
You may notice revs increasing or decreasing with no explanation or, if you rev while driving, there may not be an accompanying increase in the vehicle’s speed.
Gear changing may be less smooth and there may be a smell of burning or a noise associated with it. If you experience any of these issues, it may be an indication that your clutch may have a problem – if your clutch is already failing then continuing to drive will only make things worse, you should have it checked out as soon as you can.
