The clutch is an important part of the transmission. In fact, this is the first stage of the transmission. After the engine is started, the use of the clutch means that the pressure plate can provide the force and friction required to connect the flywheel to the engine and the clutch plate.

How to determine whether a new clutch is needed
5 signs that there may be a problem with your clutch.
What should I do if there is a problem with the clutch?
All brands and models of steel-mounted links have a range of clutch types, but without the correct knowledge, it is difficult to identify when a new clutch is needed. Here, we have listed five convincing signs that show that your clutch has worn out, so that you have the time and confidence to decide the best way.
That spongy feeling. Many of us drive every day, so diagnosing a clutch failure as early as possible may be easier than you think. The soft or sponge clutch is just a signal that you need to upgrade. This spongy feeling may become more pronounced when you let go of the clutch before the gear hangs.
The smell of burning. The lack of friction material on the clutch disc produces this unique smell. Since wear naturally occurs between the disc and the flywheel, it is particularly easy to slip the clutch. If the flywheel and clutch rotate at different speeds, it will also increase wear. In addition, when the clutch is not in use, you may hear a clicking sound, which gradually increases as the clutch is engaged.
Difficulty in changing gears. The gear shift should be smooth and without shaking, but when the clutch goes out, the gear shift may not be so smooth. When moving in or out of first gear or reversing, the tendency to shift gears becomes more obvious.
Higher bite point. As the clutch slips and damages intensify, the bite point you need to know may change. Generally, as the clutch fails, the bite point will get higher and higher.
Visible damage. Although many of us avoid exploring under the bonnet, it may be relatively easy to identify clutch damage if you know where to look. Just remove the inspection cover of the bell to see the clutch. If the clutch is damaged, fine black dust may appear.
If you find any of these signs, it is worth calling the nearest garage and checking the clutch, as you may need to replace the clutch.We are Jiangsu Shunli Steel Group, so if you stop to visit, you can also ask our well-trained engineers to take a look!
