Autotec Clutches

Clucking for a clutch? 

 The transmission of a vehicle is operated through a clutch mechanism, This is primarily made up of three parts; clutch plate, pressure plate and thrust bearing. Essentially over time either of these three components are open to wear and tear, they can be due replacement owing to a number of factors. 

 

  • General wear: Clutch plate undergoes wear through operation of different gears 
  • Thrust bearing: Depressing the clutch pedal causing the bearing to emanate a noise or squeal 
  • Slipping gears: Vehicle is engaged into a gear but does not move 
  • Bite point: Clutch pedal bite point is substantially high once pedal is raised 
  • Clutch Judder: Vehicle experiences a shaking motion from stationary to moving. 

Flying Flywheel   

The purpose of a flywheel is to assist with gear changes making driving more pleasurable and efficient, this is by removing juddering and shaking motions. Just like a clutch, the flywheel can also wear through operation, in addition to the previously mentioned factors, the vehicle may experience a 'chattering'  noise while stationary in neutral, this usually is an indication that the flywheel may require replacement.
