Transmission Clutch

Transmission Clutch—The “clutch” is made up of three main components.  The clutch disc which is the part that is spinning around inside the transmission and transfers the power from the engine via the flywheel to the transmission.  The disc fits in between the flywheel on the back of the engine and the pressure plate.  The release bearing is what moves the disc on and off the pressure plate as you operate the clutch pedal inside the vehicle. It is advisable to replace all 3 components when replacing the “clutch” and have the flywheel inspected for wear and resurfaced if needed.
