How long does a clutch last?

In normal driving conditions, a vehicle should only ever need a clutch replacement once. This is due to the construction of a clutch. Clutches are a friction based device that wears out, similar to that of a brake pad.

Aggressive driving such as dumping the clutch or power shifting will result in a drastic decrease of longevity of the clutch.

When you are replacing the clutch, these are the things to keep in mind:

  • Replace entire clutch assembly (including pressure plate)
  • Replace pivot bush or bearing
  • Have the flywheel replaced or machined

Highlands Tyremasters & Mechanical ensure quality services and will keep in contact for any delays or further repairs that are needed. Clutch repair jobs are typically completed in one day, but in some circumstances require two.
