Your clutch maintains the connection between your gearbox and your engine. When you depress the clutch pedal, two metal plates come apart and separate the engine from the drive wheels, allowing you to change gear. Bringing the pedal back up re-engages the plates and reconnects the engine to the drive wheels.
Any problems with your clutch can lead to a lack of control while driving. If you notice this, you should book a clutch replacement as soon as possible. Otherwise, your car will be at an increased accident risk.
A clutch should last 60,000 miles on average. If you drive carefully and look after the clutch, it can last much longer than this. Conversely, holding the clutch at the biting point for too long will wear it out quicker.
You should book a clutch replacement near you at the recommended interval or whenever you notice any of the following warning signs:
During a clutch change, a mechanic will inspect your clutch and gearbox condition to ensure the clutch is to blame before beginning the repair. Then, they will unhook the battery and disconnect the clutch and/or hydraulic slave cylinder before stabilising the engine. Next, they will unbolt the pressure plate, check for any leaks and damage and then clean everything and replace as many parts as necessary. Once they have rebuilt the front end of your car, they will test the clutch to ensure they’ve fixed your problem.

A flywheel is a disc that connects to the crankshaft and rotates to generate energy, storing that energy for use at a later date. When your engine struggles to provide enough torque to keep the car moving, the flywheel will use its stored energy to take over. Your flywheel also ensures that your gears are working properly as you use the clutch.
Quite often, your car will need a flywheel replacement at the same time as a clutch change. As a result, flywheel failure includes many of the same symptoms as a faulty clutch. You should book a flywheel replacement if you notice:
The average dual mass flywheel replacement cost in the UK ranges from £750 to £1,500.
Proton is a Malaysian car manufacturer which set up shop in 1983 on the orders of the then Malaysian Prime Minister, whose aim was for the country to build its own national car. Today Proton exports to more than 50 countries worldwide including the UK, where it has been selling vehicles since 2009.
One of the most popular Proton models currently sold in the UK is the Gen-2, a family saloon which also comes in an ‘Ecologic’ dual-fuel variant. This gives you the option to run the car on LPG, which will save you money on fuel costs. The other main current models on offer are the Savvy, an inexpensive compact city car, and the Satria Neo, a 3 door supermini.
Proton’s partnership with Lotus engineering has led to improved steering and cornering; the Gen-2 in particular gains plaudits from drivers for its comfortable ride. However, in general Proton drivers frequently report noisy engines, as well as bemoaning the interior’s rather cheap look and feel.
