Servicing - Clutch / Gearbox
At Cardoc we offer a range of high quality new and reconditioned clutches from Europe's leading clutch manufacturers. All parts fitted carry a 12-month or 12,000 mile guarantee (whichever is the sooner - ask for details).
Unlike various clutch fitting companies, Cardoc employ qualified technicians to undertake this often complex task that involves extensive stripping down of engine and gearbox components backed up by our no quibble guarantee. An example of some common clutch faults is listed below.
It is important to get specialist advice before fitting a new clutch as many symptoms could indicate a problem with the clutch, whilst the real fault may be something completely different such as engine revving, slipping fan belt or minor adjustment.
At Cardoc our specialist will provide you with a free clutch check and/or help to arrange vehicle recovery if your car is broken down.
Common Clutch Faults
- SLIP - Caused by oil on the friction plate or worn friction plate, the symptoms of clutch slip would be partial or total loss of drive, vehicle speed lower than normal compared with engine speed.
- DRAG - Clutch cable not at correct adjustment or centre plate sticking on splines. The symptoms of this would be difficulty in obtaining gear, particularly first and reverse gears.
- JUDDER - Caused by warped friction plate or engine / gearbox mounts broken. The symptoms of this would be a shudder and vibration as vehicle moves off from rest.
