A car’s clutch is responsible for transmitting engine power to the gearbox, so it’s crucial that it’s functioning well. If your clutch goes, you won’t be able to change gear or drive your car safely, which is a risk to you and other road users. If you think your car’s clutch is due a replacement, you can book a free clutch check at your local Halfords garage.

What does a clutch kit contain?

A clutch kit contains multiple parts, including the following:

  • Clutch disc: The rotating part of the clutch which generates friction from plates either side of the disc.
  • Pressure plate: Holds the clutch disc against the flywheel while the clutch is in use.
  • Flywheel: Some clutch kits contain a flywheel, which is a thick, heavy disc that evens out the engine’s power pulses. It also facilitates rotation of the clutch disc to keep your car’s engine running. Vehicles are fitted with either a solid flywheel or Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF).
  • Throw race or release bearings: Engages or disengages the clutch when the driver presses or releases the pedal.

Do all areas of a clutch need replacing?

You might not need to replace all parts at once, so you can buy individual parts instead. However, if the full kit needs replacing, you can probably save money if you buy the entire clutch kit together rather than purchasing all parts separately. To find out which part you need, visit your local Halfords garage and we’ll carry out a free clutch inspection.

What are the warning signs of a worn clutch?

If one or more parts of the clutch kit aren’t functioning correctly, you’ll notice a few warning signs. These include:

  • - Your clutch feels spongy, sticks, or vibrates when you press it
  • - A squeaking or a grumbling noise when you press down on the pedal
  • - You can rev the engine, but acceleration is poor
  • - You have difficulty shifting gears
  • - A 'slipping' clutch, which causes a momentary loss of acceleration

If you notice any of these issues, it’s crucial to get the clutch checked as soon as possible. You may be able to replace the clutch kit yourself if you’re familiar with automotive repairs, and you have an inspection kit plus all necessary tools. Otherwise, visit your local Halfords garage and one of our trained mechanics will be happy to do it for you.

Transmission parts

The transmission system powers the wheels to move your car. It works in tandem with the car’s clutch kit and gearbox, so if it’s not operating correctly, you might notice issues with the clutch. If you need transmission parts, enter your car’s registration and we’ll display the correct type for your vehicle.

You’ll need an inspection kit or car ramp and various mechanical tools to replace a clutch kit. Unless you’re an experienced mechanic, it’s not advised to replace a clutch kit yourself. It’s a complex process and it might be fitted incorrectly, which could cause further damage to the car engine and other clutch parts. We recommend visiting your local Halfords garage for a free clutch inspection check where we can advise on the exact repairs needed. We’ll also be happy to repair it for you.

On average, it takes 5-6 hours to replace a full clutch kit. If only replacing individual parts, it could take less time. If you’re not confident doing this yourself, find your local garage and one of our experts can took a look.
