Composition of Clutch

  • The clutch is an integral part of the car. It helps smooth shifting by providing a smooth connection between the engine and the manual transmission shaft.

    What exactly does the clutch do?

    In short, the role of the clutch is to separate the engine from the wheels so that you can shift gears while driving.

    What is the clutch made of?

    The mechanism is an integrated system consisting of several main components located between the flywheel and the transmission input shaft. Its constituent elements are interrelated, which means that when it is necessary to replace any element, it is recommended to replace them altogether in a group.

    What is included in the clutch kit?

    The standard clutch kit includes three main components-pressure plates, separator (release bearing) and drive plate.

    Pressure plate

    The function of this disc is to ensure reliable contact between the flywheel and the drive disc. The disk is mounted on the flywheel and rotates with the flywheel, thereby exerting pressure on the drive disk.

    Disk drive

    The drive has a connection function. One side of it is fixed on the flywheel, and the other side is fixed on the pressure plate (disc). There are friction materials on both sides of the drive disc, which is why it is also called friction.

    Release bearing

    The bearing is connected to the clutch pedal via a fork and drive system (mechanical, pneumatic or hydraulic). When you step on the pedal, the pedal moves along the axis of the transmission input shaft to the clutch housing (basket), stepping on the diaphragm spring, thereby releasing the pressure on the drive disc. Modern release bearings are spherical, mechanical or hydraulic.
