Mobile Clutch Repair in Northampton

If your car has a clutch problem and is dangerous to drive, you might not want to risk driving it to a garage. Fortunately, there are plenty of mobile mechanics who offer a mobile clutch repair service. They can come to your house or place of work at a time that’s convenient for you and complete a high-quality repair.

With specialist equipment and genuine or OEM equivalent parts and equipment used, a mobile clutch repair still gives you the same high-quality clutch change that you need - just in a way that works better for you.

Here are some of the other ways a mobile clutch replacement can make your life easier:

 

Convenience - Rather than having to find time to take your car to a garage and then trying to keep your life on track without it, you can have your clutch replacement completed at a location that works best for you. This could be your driveway or a car park at work during your normal day. This helps you avoid disruption.

Flexibility - You may be able to book a mobile clutch replacement on a weekend, evening or even overnight, depending on the mobile mechanics in your area. If your schedule doesn’t really accommodate maintenance at a traditional garage, this can make your life easier.

Transparency - You get to see what is happening during your mobile clutch replacement at all times. This makes it easier to trust the quality of the work and gives you the peace of mind that all the checks have been completed to the highest standard.

Cheaper - A mobile clutch replacement involves less overhead costs and expenses, so they are often at least competitively priced against, if not cheaper than most local garages.

Flywheel Replacement

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:

  • Your gears slipping
  • A burning smell
  • Clutch 'chatter' (the clutch stutters when disengaging)
  • Vibrations in the clutch pedal
  • Clutch 'drag' (not fully releasing)

 

Why Should I Book a Clutch Replacement and Flywheel Replacement At the Same Time?

Even though your flywheel rarely needs to be replaced, it makes sense to get your flywheel checked at the same time as your clutch. Both parts are located deep within the engine and take time to replace - if your clutch is beginning to wear out, chances are your flywheel is headed in the same direction.

Whilst a flywheel replacement may not be necessary, an inspection like this could potentially save you money in the long run, and it is certainly worth getting these parts checked at the same time. The average dual mass flywheel replacement cost in the UK ranges from £750 to £1,500.

 

FAQs

How Does the Clutch Work?

A 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.

 

When Should I Book a Clutch Replacement?

You should book a clutch replacement every 60,000 miles, on average. If you drive carefully and look after this assembly, it can even last longer than this. Conversely, aggressive use of the clutch will shorten the lifespan. This includes holding the clutch at the biting point for too long and 'riding' the clutch while driving downhill.

You should book a clutch replacement near you at the recommended interval or whenever you notice any of the following warning signs:

  • You struggle to change gear
  • Your car won't engage gear
  • The clutch makes a grinding, squealing, shrieking or other bad noise
  • You can smell burning from the clutch
  • Your biting point has become higher than normal

 

What Happens During a Clutch Replacement?

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.


How Long Does a Clutch Change Take?

A clutch replacement usually takes between 3 and 5 hours, but can take up to 10 hours to complete. It is buried deep within the engine bay, so a mechanic usually has to remove a lot of parts to access the clutch.

 

How Much Does a Clutch Replacement Cost?

The average UK clutch kit costs £325, but you can face a £1,000 bill for a full clutch replacement. You can save up to 70% on your clutch replacement by comparing deals from thousands of local garages through BookMyGarage.
