Frequently asked questions about clutch replacement & repairs in Oxfordshire

Read our answers to questions about clutch replacement costs, symptoms and more.

What does a clutch replacement in Oxfordshire involve?

A lot of the process to change a clutch is vehicle specific, however there are a few standard steps. The mechanic will:

  • Raise the vehicle
  • Split the gearbox from the engine
  • Remove the old clutch unit
  • Fit a new clutch kit
  • Put everything back together
  • Road test the vehicle

How do you tell if your clutch is worn out?

If you drive a vehicle with a manual gearbox, at some point you will experience a clutch starting to wear, the same as you will with brake pads.

The friction material will start to wear thin and it will no longer provide sufficient contact with the flywheel and you will experience the clutch slipping, so here are some tell tale signs of this occurring;

  • The engine speed will rise up rapidly, but you do not go any faster, especially up hill or under hard acceleration
  • You notice an almost electrical sweet burning smell inside the car

Other symptoms though are prevalent

  • You can engage a gear when the engine is off, but not when it is running
  • The clutch pedal biting point (this is the point when you feel the vehicle moving from stationary for example) has become much higher up in the pedal travel
  • You start to find it harder to move between gears and can often hear a crunch as you do so

How many hours does it take to replace a clutch?

On average, clutch replacement times can range from around 3 hours to over 7.5 hours with an average of around 4 hours. The time that the job takes will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How do you know if you need a new clutch?

You can find out whether you need a new clutch by getting a professional diagnosis from a mechanic. If you're unsure whether it needs replacing book an inspection with a mechanic to check the component and get advice on whether a replacement is needed.

How much does it cost to fix a clutch cable in Oxfordshire?

Prices for a clutch cable replacement range from £70 to £130 with an average cost of £95. Ultimately, the cost of a clutch cable replacement depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement.

Is a worn clutch an MOT failure?

No, a worn clutch will normally not lead to an MOT failure. As the MOT only checks for safety-critical components on a car, the condition of the transmission and clutch is not part of the MOT checks.

What happens when you change gears without engaging the clutch?

If you attempt to change gears without using the clutch, the gear teeth will grind together and damage the gearbox. Doing this repeatedly can end up damaging or even destroy the transmission.

Can Oxfordshire garages offer home collection and delivery for clutch replacement?

Yes, many garages in Oxfordshire are able to offer collection and delivery for a clutch replacement. With ClickMechanic collection & delivery is free if your vehicle is drivable. Once booked a mechanic will pick up the vehicle on the day and time of your choice, do the work, and return the vehicle at a time convenient to you. Simply enter your vehicle registration number and postcode to get an upfront price for a clutch replacement in Oxfordshire.

Can Oxfordshire mobile mechanics do clutch replacement at my home or office?

Typically no, Oxfordshire mobile mechanics cannot do a clutch replacement at your home or office, because the repair job can be complicated, may need many hours of work depending on the job and may need specialist equipment. However, mobile mechanics may be able to do a clutch inspection at your home or office and then drive the car to a garage if available to conduct a clutch replacement.
