Has your clutch become heavy, juddering when moving away or even started to slip under acceleration (over-revving under acceleration). Your clutch might need replacing.
We offer expert clutch replacements on most makes and models.
Bring your vehicle down and one of our skilled technicians will carry out a full clutch check. Through our expert diagnosis we will be able to tell if your clutch is faulty before we start any work on your vehicle.
Other parts that may require attention if your clutch needs replacing are the Concentric Slave Cylinder and vehicle flywheel.


What a Clutch Does:
A clutch initiates motion or increased the velocity of a mass generally by transferring kinetic energy from another moving item and disengaging the drive so you can change gear.
Common Clutch Faults
Clutch Drag: This is where the clutch plate is not at a correct adjustment or the centre plate is sticking on the splines and the difficulties you would have with this problem is obtaining gears particularly first and reverse gears.
Clutch Judder: This is caused by a warped friction plate or the gearbox or engine mounts could be broken, with this you get a shudder and a vibration when the vehicle starts to move.
Clutch Slip: This is caused by the oil on the friction plate or worn friction plate, although the symptoms of the clutch slip would be partial or you would have total loss of drive; also your vehicle speed would be lower than normal compared with the engine speed.
In any situation if you have doubts that your clutch is not working properly and making too much of a noise then you need to replace the damaged or existing clutch with a new one. It is important to replace the clutch so you can get the most out of the running of your vehicle.
