Having your vehicle’s clutch replaced doesn’t have to be a stressful process. With assistance from the gearbox experts at Newcastle Gearbox & Diff, you can rest assured in knowing that your vehicle will be fully functional and back out on the road as soon as possible.
But one question that comes up a lot regarding vehicle clutches is when they need to be replaced. Read on for a few tips that should help you identify when your clutch needs to be repaired or replaced.
#1 – Take note of your clutch pedal’s ‘resistance’
Your vehicle’s clutch pedal should offer some ‘resistance’ when you attempt to disengage it. If the pedal is engaged/disengaged with ease, this is likely a sign that your clutch is worn out.
#2 – Pay attention to your car’s RPM meter
A nifty ‘experiment’ to try regarding your vehicle’s clutch is to shift from 3rd gear to 2nd while driving and pay attention to your RPM meter. If it does not immediately go up, this could be a sign that your clutch needs replacing.
#3 – Has the height of your clutch pedal changed?
If you suspect the height of your clutch pedal has changed (in either the ‘engaged’ or ‘disengaged’ positions), this could indicate that your clutch has worn down.
#4 – Have an expert inspect your vehicle’s clutched
