Harrow Service Centre
Bosch Car Service
We offer a range of high quality new clutches from Europe's leading clutch manufacturers, Valeo, LUK and Sachs. Unlike some other clutch fitting companies, we employ qualified technicians so a proficient person carries out this complex task that involves extensive stripping down of engine and gearbox components.
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.
An example of some common clutch faults is listed below.
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 spline. 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 stationary.
