It is important to be aware of signs that your vehicle’s clutch needs service to avoid a full replacement. Indications your clutch needs attention are a grinding noise when going into gear or the car lacking power even though the engine speed rises. As soon as you notice problems with the clutch, address it. Early clutch issues could mean a small repair or adjustment and stop premature wear on expensive components.
Replacing a clutch can be time consuming and expensive. A full replacement includes removing the driveline and transmission to reach the clutch plate, the pressure plate, the throw-out bearing, and the pilot bearing. Resurfacing the flywheel ensures the clutch engages smoothly. There are many moving parts to consider when replacing the clutch.
The certified technicians at Harrell’s Auto Service first give the clutch system a full diagnosis to understand all possible repair options. It may be feasible to break down the repair instead of completing a full replacement. For example, the hydraulic system may need to be replaced instead of a full clutch replacement, saving you time and money. Harrell’s Auto Service will work with you to keep your clutch performing at its best.
