How does a standard clutch work? Here’s the basic process:
- When you want to change gears you press your foot on the clutch pedal
- The pedals acts on a linkage which transmits that force to the release fork
- The release fork presses the throw-out bearing, also known as the clutch release bearing
- This bearing, in turn, presses against the middle of the diaphragm spring. The spring pivots on the studs which pulls on the pressure plate and disengages the clutch plate (aka clutch disk) from the fly wheel
- The flywheel is attached to the engine so now the engine is disengaged ready for a gear change
Each of these components will suffer from wear and tear throughout the lifetime of the vehicle and will need repairs.
