Many people mistakenly believe that the clutch’s sole function is to put the car in neutral gear. However, it also plays a crucial role in disengaging the transmission from the drivetrain.

Understanding the Clutch Mechanism
A common misconception is that the clutch is only used to place the car in neutral gear. However, it also plays a pivotal role in disengaging the transmission from the drivetrain.

While the engine is operational, it is engineered to be in constant rotation. If the engine ceases to spin, it will stop functioning and shut down. The transmission transfers this motion to the drive shaft, and subsequently, to the wheels. However, it is undesirable for your transmission or wheels to be in constant rotation. The primary function of the clutch is to disconnect the transmission from the engine, enabling gear shifting without grinding.

Clutch Repair & Replacement Services
Over time, the clutch deteriorates, although its repair is relatively straightforward compared to the more intricate transmission repair. Occasionally, it is necessary to replace the entire clutch as the clutch disc has been entirely worn down. Other frequent issues include hydraulic leaks, air bubbles in the hydraulic line, and stretched cable controls.
