Clutch Replacement

Dublin’s Premier Clutch Replacement & Repair Centre.  Clutch Replacement is time consuming because you have to remove the car wheels, drive shaft and gearbox before you can access the clutch to replace it. In addition you have to replace the heavy duty clutch parts.

Your car clutch should last 150,000 km and more. However they can fail at an earlier stage depending on the type of driving and style of driving.

At Baldoyle Auto Centre Ltd, we are equipped and experienced at carrying out this heavy duty work. All our mechanics are fully qualified and come from main dealer experience

How your clutch works

The clutch consists of a large disc in between the gearbox and engine. The disc is attached to the engine and spins with it. When you take your foot off the clutch to move the car, the disc is pressed against the gear box causing the gears to turn. It is made of a very strong material which allows it to slip a little as it touches the gearbox plate, giving you a smooth take off.

How do I know if my clutch needs replacing

Are you experiencing difficulties when changing gears? Can you get a smell of burning when you are driving? Does your car take a long time to build up speed even in a lower gear? Is there a rattling sound coming from your clutch or gearbox when your car is stationary? These are some of the signs your clutch needs to be replaced.
