How Does a Car's Clutch Work?

The clutch is perhaps the most important part of a car’s transmission system. It comprises two metal plates which are responsible for maintaining a connection between the engine and the gearbox. When the driver depresses the clutch pedal the plates come apart, separating the engine from the drive wheels, allowing you to change gear. Bringing the pedal back up re-engages the plates which in turn connect the engine to the drive wheels.

Excessive noise and vibration from the clutch area can be caused by a bad release bearing or pilot bearing. If this is the case in your car, the garage will take apart the clutch assembly in order to replace the bearings.

If the clutch is grabbing and shuddering as it’s engaged, the garage may need to take a look at the flywheel as well. Many modern vehicles are fitted with a dual mass flywheel; a rotating mechanical device which can break down. There’s no easy way for garages to check for this without disassembling the clutch and inspecting the pressure plate and flywheel. If the clutch pedal is giving little or no resistance, the problem could be a seal leak in the master or slave cylinder.

What can go wrong with a clutch?

The clutch works on the concept of friction. When the friction material wears thin and loses its ability to grip both surfaces, it becomes less efficient and slippage occurs.

When the clutch begins to wear out, it may only slip a little bit; this will feel like a slight shudder or jerk as you release the clutch. You may also feel a ‘grabbing’ or shuddering as the clutch is engaged. It may ‘grind’ on releasing, or the pedal may not release fully. Another indicator of a worn clutch is a lack of acceleration, in spite of the revs continuing to increase. Sometimes there is an unpleasant burning smell as a side-effect or a worn clutch; however, not all such smells are down to the clutch and it could be a sign that oil is leaking.

Whenever the clutch starts slipping, it’s time to replace it. The clutch is part of a more complex system, and to repair any part of it you have to separate the engine and gearbox which requires a hefty amount of labour. Continuing to drive your vehicle with a slipping clutch could generate enough heat to damage your engine's main bearing and may lead to transmission damage. Another knock-on problem could be damage to the flywheel, which bolts to your engine's crankshaft and provides the means for power transfer from the engine to the gearbox.
