  • What causes the clutch to burn out?

    Where it is true that some clutches last longer than others, a build-up of friction in the clutch plate can guarantee that it will not last as long.

    The most common things that cause this buildup are:

    • riding around with your clutch pedal half way down
    • Shifting before the clutch is fully disengaged – or letting the clutch pedal out without being completely in gear
    • Holding Your Vehicle On A Hill Using Your Clutch instead of your handbrake

    By avoiding these 3 things it will help to reduce friction and hopefully stop those clutches from burning. For more information – check out our blog on driving habits that are damaging your clutch.
