Whether your vehicle is suffering from a slipping clutch or even a heavy pedal, Autopoint can help.
Clutch replacement will prevent more extensive engine damage. Your clutch enables you to connect and control the power of the engine to your gearbox - and then to create motion.
It's essential that it is working correctly and that wear is monitored. Whether you are in urgent need of repair or would like advice on early symptoms you may be experiencing, we are ready to take your call.

What is the average mileage for a clutch replacement?
Most clutches are made to last approximately 60,000 miles before they need to be replaced. Some may need replacing at 30,000 and some others can keep going well over 100,000 miles, but this is uncommon.
Can a clutch fail suddenly?
Clutches tend to fail in one of two ways – either suddenly or gradually. A sudden failure is most often caused by a broken or loose clutch cable, link or a failed hydraulic cylinder. A gradual failure will be signs of the clutch slipping, harder to select gears and a noise caused by the clutch bearing.
Is replacing a clutch a big job?
Yes, it's a big, labour-intensive job. Just be glad the garage we will do it for you, and if you need convincing, just have a look under your bonnet to see how you'd get at the clutch yourself!
