The clutch is a transmission organ positioned between the engine and the gearbox that lets you engage gears and stay put when stationary.
Once activated, it momentarily interrupts transfer of motion from the drive shaft to the drive wheels thus making it possible to change gears. The clutch system consists of three components: the thrust bearing, the disc and the pressure plate that work together to get one end result: your car’s acceleration or deceleration according to the gear engaged.
If you feel the clutch is disengaged or the gearbox itself resists your action, we advise you to check the entire system as soon as possible at an Authorised Dealer.
If you feel the clutch is harder than usual or it takes longer than normal to press it all the way down, your vehicle needs checking at a local Authorised dealer immediately.
When setting off or when in maximum torque, the engine’s rpms increase but the speed doesn’t increase in proportion. If this occurs, please visit your local Authorised Dealer.
When the clutch “pulls”, the car starts to judder. Remember this component can start to show signs of wear after just 37,000 m because it depends a great deal on the way you drive.
One common consequence of the clutch system wearing is a loud noise that manifests while driving, in both minimum and maximum torque. This noise can become persistent over time.
Clutch pedal vibrations are due to flywheel wear, even when it doesn’t show signs of it. Always replace with a clutch kit, ensuring you don’t compromise the lifespan of a new clutch.
