The clutch is a very durable piece, but that doesn’t mean it can’t wear out considerably over time.

It can withstand tens of thousands of kilometers or hundreds of thousands. It depends a lot on the style of driving, if you keep your foot on the clutch even when you park at a traffic light for example, when you should not do this, but also on the material from which it is made.

Signs that the clutch is about to give way

1. The clutch pedal is softer than before.

2. The car enters the gear more difficult.

3. The car is skating. Specifically, the clutch disc skates because a worn clutch will skid in contact with the flywheel.

4. The car turns, but the speed does not increase. Although you press the accelerator and the number of speeds increases, the car does not seem to listen to the command and moves much slower than normal. This is the sign that should make you go straight to the service.

5. You smell burnt.

6. The clutch pedal engages.

7. Unnatural noises.

8. Abnormal position of the clutch pedal. The pedal may be too high when the plate and disc have worn out, may be too low if the bearing or lever locks, may be soft or hard when the pressure in the hydraulic system begins to drop, or may simply be blocked, in which case we can still drive.
