Need a clutch repair or replacement?

If your clutch is worn out or preventing you from changing gear come to MOT City for a clutch replacement.

The clutch controls the connection between the car engine and its wheels. When you use the clutch, it disconnects the engine, allowing you to change gears before reconnecting to the engine. In a car with maunal transmission the clutch is an essential part, but because it is in constant use it can become worn or broken over time.

 

How do I know if I need a new clutch?

The most common signs that you may need to get a new clutch fitted include:

  • A rattling or grinding sound when you change gears
  • Changing gears becomes more difficult or even impossible
  • The enging will rev, but your speed hardly increases
  • Your engine revs go up or down for no reason
  • As the clutch degrades over time, you will find that the biting point in the engine gets higher and higher.
  • The clutch may seem to “slip” causing either a loss of acceleration or a loss of drive altogether

I've used MOT City for several years now. The service is always excellent and the work is thorough and professional.

Can you drive a car without a clutch?

If your clutch goes while you are driving, you should be able to keep driving your car until you find a suitable place to stop, but it will probably be quite difficult. Continuing to drive a car without a clutch can cause serious damage to the transmission which can be tricky and costly to repair. Driving a car without a clutch should really only be done in an emergency and for as short a time as possible.

How long does a clutch last?

How long your clutch lasts will depend on a few factors, including your driving style. Most will last around 60,000 miles before you need to get a replacement clutch. This is a very rough guide though; some clutches will last to 100,000 miles while others may need to be replaced closer to 30,000 miles. The best thing is to look out for the tell-tale signs we’ve listed, and get our clutch experts to check if you have any concerns.

What does clutch replacement cost?
