The clutch is a key component in your vehicle as it allows you to change between gears when driving. It comprises 3 parts; the flywheel, the clutch plate and the pressure plate. When you take your foot off the clutch all 3 parts connect. When you press down on the clutch the 3 parts separate, allowing a smooth transition between gears.
If you’re experiencing problems changing gear, or you feel that the pedal isn’t working efficiently, we would recommend a clutch check. CVS technicians will thoroughly examine the component and diagnose the problem. We’ll let you know whether you need a minor adjustment, a clutch repair or a full clutch replacement.
