Gearboxes and Clutches
The clutch allows for a smooth gear change and an increase in power provided by the engine when you pull away. In order to replace the clutch, the gearbox must be removed. Sometimes a clutch also has a dual mass flywheel which also needs replacing
The gearbox transmits power from the engine to the wheels in order to achieve the desired road speed. A worn gear linkage may cause excessive play in the gear stick or prevent gear change at the right time. Problems with the gearbox can include stiffness or crunching.
The exhaust system is a series of pipes and boxes which channel emissions away from the front of the vehicle, help to maintain optimum fuel efficiency and reduce engine noise.
Damage to the exhaust can cause false emission readings during the MOT and will therefore fail. If you hear an unusual noise coming from the exhaust give us a call and book it in.
