Clutch & Flywheel

Pressure Plates

The pressure plate is what holds the clutch disc against the flywheel and transfers power from the engine to the transmission. If the pressure plate is old or failing, the clamping force may not be enough to transfer all of the power from the flywheel to the transmission without having the clutch 'slip.' A worn out clutch disc may also contribute to the slipping of the clutch.


Pilot Bearings

This bearing acts as a guide for the drive shaft of the transmission. Every complete clutch job should include a replacement of this flywheel bearing. Pilot Bearing failure can lead to significant damage to the transmission input shaft.

Clutch Hydraulic Hoses and Lines

If your clutch hoses appear swollen or cracked, they may need replacement. Replace your hoses today and keep your car running. Don't take that chance of breaking a clutch hose and being stranded by the side of the road.

Clutch Master Cylinders and Parts

Is your clutch release not working as well as you'd like it to? Are you a slave to your worn out cylinders? Get control with a replacement master or slave clutch cylinder. Replacing the slave cylinder is a good idea when you are performing a clutch job. With a relatively low cost, the insurance of replacing it when you're performing a big clutch job is well worth the cost. The way a hydraulic clutch works is quite simple to understand. When you push the clutch pedal, it sends fluid from the clutch master cylinder down a hose to the clutch slave cylinder, which is mounted on the transmission. The fluid, which is under pressure, forces the clutch cylinder to push out a rod, which is connected mechanically to the release fork. When the rod moves, it also moves the release fork, disengaging the clutch, and allowing you to shift. Also be sure to purge the system of air bubbles at the same time.
