When you own a manual, the clutch is one of the most important parts of your vehicle. The clutch is made up of lots of small pieces which deteriorate over time, either needing to be serviced or replaced. If you are having trouble changing gears, it may be time for a clutch service or repair.
When you will need clutch replacement depends on a variety of factors, including the make, the model, the year of manufacture and how frequently you drive your vehicle. Therefore, it is best to get regular servicing to prevent major issues.
There are some obvious signs that you need urgent clutch repairs, however. If you smell burning after changing gears or performing a hill start, your gear stick does not stay in place, your vehicle shudders when changing gears or the clutch pedal is not returning to its original position, it is time to see a mechanic as soon as possible.
We recommend getting your clutch serviced regularly, as it has a high cost to replace. Clutch servicing will keep your vehicle working smoothly and prevent a hefty replacement cost further down the line.
If you do end up needing clutch repair or replacement, Andrew McClure Mechanical is here to help. When it comes to replacing the clutch, we will temporarily remove the transmission, allowing us to switch out the clutch and the pressure plate. In addition to replacing any other worn parts involved with the clutch, we will change the clutch fluid and ensure the pieces are firmly in place.
It is always better to avoid full repairs by getting the clutch serviced and keeping it in good condition. You can do this by not riding the clutch, and only using it to change gears or start moving. A faulty clutch will put you, your passengers and others on the road in danger.
