If the world of motoring and car maintenance is a little unfamiliar to you, don't hesitate to pop into your local Halfords store for some guidance. Or check out our essential guides for stress-free scrolling and helpful hints.
We know that finding the right car parts and replacing them yourself can be a bit daunting. That's why we offer a range of services from recharging air conditioning to replacing batteries at our stores, as well as advice if you need it.
Take a look at our motoring services video for more information.
A spigot bearing clutch supports the front end of the gearbox input shaft. The shaft pushes through the clutch at the gearbox end, and has a splined section which connects the clutch to the gearbox. If the spigot bearing clutch is misaligned or faulty then it will vibrate or screech - meaning it's time to get it checked out or replaced.
A solid flywheel conversion is a simple way of replacing a worn dual mass flywheel. Designed to reduce vibrations between the gearbox and the engine, a dual mass flywheel can wear relatively quickly, unlike a single solid metal flywheel - which is more durable and can provide extra clutch protection. Check engine codes and BHP for your vehicle - if the car already has a conversion kit fitted then you'll need a concentric slave cylinder too.
Wear and tear or a small knock can unbalance a propshaft. If you notice a grinding sound or vibrations coming from your car's chassis underside, then it might be time to replace it - check out our range of propshaft components to find the right part for your car's make and model.
A gearbox is a crucial part of the car which allows energy to be transferred from the engine to the road via your wheels. If you're having problems with your gearbox or gearbox linkages then be sure to take a look at our replacement parts range to get the right components for your car's make and model.
A flywheel is the interface between the engine and the clutch - take your foot off the clutch, and the clutch disc presses against the flywheel, locking the engine to the transmission input shaft. Friction between the flywheel and the clutch plate determines how much force the clutch can hold, but if the flywheel has any oil, cracks or grooves on it, then this can reduce friction and make the gears slip - meaning it's time for a new flywheel.
Usually found on cars with rear wheel drive or 4 wheel drive, drive shafts are used to send rotation and torque to the vehicle's wheels. If you can hear your car shuddering, vibrating, clunking or making some strange squealing noises, then it could well be time to get your drive shaft replaced.
Constant Velocity joints (or CV joints for short) are designed to connect a car's transmission to the wheels, and become worn over time. Notice any clunking or vibrating when you accelerate or decelerate? This could be a sign of inner joint failure, so you might need a shiny new CV joint kit as a complete CV replacement for your car.
Designed to cover the key constant velocity joints (or CV joints), CV boot kits can help prevent loss of grease and stop water ingress. If you replace your damaged CV boot in the nick of time then you'll be able to avoid expensive damage to the CV joint. Find the right replacement kit for your car in our CV boot range.
Crucial for driving, a transmission clutch features a wide range of different parts, including the flywheel, clutch pressure plates, a clutch disc, and lots of other smaller parts. If your clutch is slipping or if you're having any other transmission-related problems then it may be time to replace any damaged or worn component - take a look at our range to find the right parts for your vehicle.
Clutch kits usually contain the major parts found a in a transmission clutch, including the clutch itself, a pressure plate, throw-out bearing, pilot bearing, and the clutch alignment tool - making them a great all-in-one solution when replacing a damaged or broken clutch.
Hydraulic clutches rather cleverly use hydraulic mechanisms instead of a clutch cable to engage or disengage the engine from the transmission. They're self-adjusting - but will still need regular checks to keep them working properly. If your hydraulic clutch isn't performing as well as it should be, then take a look at our range to find the right replacement part for your car's make and model.
A clutch cover is designed to connect and disconnect engine power, and is bolted to the flywheel. The clutch plate, pressure plate and diaphragm spring are all protected inside the cover. All this spinning is hard work though - over time your car clutch cover will deteriorate. Fear not - we've got replacement car clutch covers aplenty here at Halfords, available separately or as part of a clutch kit.
A clutch cable connects the clutch pedal to the levers. As the driver you'll use these levers to engage or disengage the clutch whilst changing gear. Constant wear and tear can cause damage and fraying of the clutch cable, in which case it's really important to get a replacement cable sorted. Take a look at our range to find a quality clutch cable for your car.
