Clutch Replacement Service Explained

If you are a proud owner of a manual transmission Kia, you understand the importance of the clutch. Used to manually shift gears, the clutch is a third petal that sits to the far left beside the brake. This clutch allows the transmission to shift gears without disengaging the engine. When the clutch is pressed in by the driver’s foot, the hydraulic piston pushes pressure onto a release fork, allowing the driver to make the gear change, and increase or decrease speed. When the clutch is unable to properly operate and release the different pressures that allow the transmission to shift gears, it is time for the clutch to be replaced.



Getting Your Clutch Replaced

If your clutch is sticking and not appropriately allowing you as the driver to shift gears, you will need to have it replaced. This can happen due to simple wear and tear over time, where the padding of the clutch is removed due to excessive use and heat friction. When you have your clutch replaced, it allows the transmission to properly operate and prevents a more expensive replacement down the line for your vehicle.

Bypassing Clutch Replacement

If you choose not to replace your clutch although it is showing signs of needing repair, you will find difficulty in shifting gears initially. Additional force may be required to move your vehicle from one gear to the other. Also, a clutch that is working inappropriately can allow air to enter the hydraulic lines, releasing the necessary pressure for the pistons and release fork. The damage to the transmission can continue to develop and further deteriorate the system due to an inoperable clutch. Should these things happen while driving, the situation could become dangerous for you as well as any passengers and cars that are currently sharing the roadway.
