Clutch Repair and Services in Whitmore Lake, MI
A lot of people presume that the clutch is actually the pedal that is positioned to the left of the brake in your vehicle. That is not entirely false, but there's more to it than just that.
At The Hamburg Garage, we are glad you have chosen us and we look forward to serving you.
How a Clutch Works
The majority of people assume that the purpose of the clutch is just to put the car in neutral gear. However, there's more to that, because it disengages the transmission from the drivetrain.
While the engine is on, it is designed to be constantly spinning. If the engine is not spinning, it would stop running and would shut down in the end. The motion is transferred to the drive shaft by the transmission and, in turn, to the wheels. However, you certainly don't want your transmission or your wheels to be spinning all the time. The main purpose of the clutch is to disengage the transmission from the motor in order for you to shift gears without grinding.
Clutch Service & Replacement
Over time, the clutch wears out, but its repair is not a difficult maintenance work for our skilled mechanics. In some cases, you have to replace the entire clutch, because the clutch disc has been worn out completely. Other common problems include a leak in the hydraulics, air bubbles formed in the hydraulic line and stretched cable controls.
The Hamburg Garage’s certified technicians are always happy to answer any of your questions for your clutch repair and service, and we work hard to get you back on the road in Whitmore Lake, as quickly as possible!
