How do I know if I require a new clutch?
The clutch is an essential component in the smooth operation of your vehicle but it can be difficult to know when your clutch is worn out or failing. The clutch is in almost constant use but does not have a specific lifespan, with the rate of general wear and tear depending on driving style and driving environment. Riding the clutch is a habit that a number of drivers have, particularly when at traffic lights or in heavy traffic, and this is one of the main causes of the clutch wearing out quickly or failing. Riding the clutch prevents the clutch plates from fully disengaging and causes unnecessary wear and tear.
One of the first signs that you have an issue with your clutch is that it may become difficult to change gear or there is a noise or burning smell when you change gears. You may also notice that when you rev your engine, the revs may increase or decrease randomly or, that despite revving your engine when driving, there is not a noticeable increase in speed. All of these are signs of potential clutch issues and you should look to have the problem investigated as soon as possible, as driving on a failing clutch will only lead to further problems.
