Does my clutch need to be repaired?
A clutch in a standard (manual) transmission scenario helps transfer the power from the motor through the transmission and eventually to the wheels to propel the vehicle. Like any part of the vehicle’s drive train system the clutch has components that can and do wear out over time. The clutch can be repaired and serviced and brought back to near new operationally by a qualified service technician.
