If you drive a manual car, you will be familiar with a clutch. Clutches are useful devices that have two rotating shafts. In a clutch, one of the shafts is typically driven by a motor or pulley, and the other shaft drives another device. The clutch connects the two shafts so that they can either be locked together and spin at the same speed or be decoupled and spin at different speeds.
Unfortunately, there is no established time frame or mileage point in which you will need to change the clutch of your car as this is all going to depend on your driving style, how old your car is etc.
You may think your clutch is fine, especially if you only drive your car around your local town. However, if you’re stopping and starting a lot, this could wear out your clutch more than drivers who spend more time travelling on motorways.
The appropriate time to change your clutch is when you start noticing a difference in driving. The only way to tell this is by listening and paying attention to the sounds your car is making and how it is driving.
In general, a car clutch should last anywhere between 30000 and 100000 miles, however, depending on different driving variables, clutches can last for more or less mileage.
The average cost for clutch replacement in the UK is around £450. If you need your clutch replaced and need to find a mechanic in your area, get a quote with MyCarNeedsA.com today!
