When the clutch starts to show signs of wear can depend greatly on the driver, driving style and the vehicle that you own.
The clutch is the component that connects the engine to the wheels. When you press the clutch pedal, the clutch assembly is disengaged.
The clutch components consist of:
- Pressure Plate
- Disengaging Unit
- Clutch Disc
The clutch is one of the most wearing parts of your vehicle.
If you excessively hold the clutch whilst driving, this will increase the wear. Holding the clutch creates heat and as the heat builds up, this will cause increase wear to the clutch disc.
