How do I know if I require a new clutch?
Despite the clutch being an essential component in the mechanics of your vehicle, it can be difficult to know when it is worn out or failing.
Although a clutch does not have a specific lifespan, it is in near continual use while driving. The severity of wear and tear depends very much on driving environment and the driving style of the drivers.
For examples, some drivers have a habit of ‘riding the clutch’ rather than engaging the handbrake when at traffic lights or in heavy traffic. Riding the clutch prevents the clutch plates from fully disengaging and causes unnecessary wear and tear – this is one of the main causes of a failing or worn out clutch.
Initial signs that you have an issue with your clutch may be that you find it difficult to change gear or there is a noise or burning smell when you do so. You may also notice that revs may increase or decrease randomly when the driver revs the engine or, that despite that revving, there is not an associated increase in speed as expected.
Driving on a failing clutch will only lead to further problems, if you find yourself with any of these signs of clutch issues then and you should look to have the problem investigated as soon as possible.
How is the cost of a clutch replacement broken down?
Unfortunately replacing a clutch can be an expensive job. Some vehicles require the flywheel to be replaced alongside a replacement clutch, which can add a significant amount to the cost. The final total varies greatly depending on the specific problem with the clutch and what make and model of car you have.
Labour hours are the biggest expense in replacing a clutch, followed by parts. Part costs will include both the clutch itself along with any other associated parts and sundries such as clutch fluid. If you need a clutch repaired, the best thing to do is to get quotes from a number of garages and one of the easiest ways to get a quick and professional quote is through Autobutler.
