Newquay Motors

Mobile mechanic in Newquay, 5 years of experience


10th June 2019
“Full clutch and flywheel replacement at very short notice...
Paul was great!
He called to introduce himself and arrange collection the following day.
He explained the work and that he would keep in touch through the day - which he did.


My car was collected promptly, the work completed and returned to me the same day.
All old parts returned for my peace of mind using a new (to me) mechanic who I didn't know.
Paul was very professional, explaining what he had done, showing me the wear on the old parts.
My car was spot on.
I'd called almost every garage I could find but the earliest date offered was at least a week away, VW dealership was a 3wk wait!!!
I knew I would have to pay premium prices, I need the car daily. However, ClickMechanics price with the exact same brand of parts used by VW was still over £500 CHEAPER.
Yes, I did have lower priced quotes but not hugely lower and they couldn't do the work for a week at least anyway.
I booked ClickMechanic on a Wednesday evening. They arranged everything and the following day Paul, the mechanic messaged me & then called to confirm that he would have my car repaired on Saturday.
All parts were included in the quote, they were ordered and delivered to the mechanic for fitting when EVERY other garage said there was no chance.

It's always a concern to fork out on your car and have to use someone unknown to yourself. The clutch and flywheel would probably need changing...
The best quote I had was £850 & 10days before it could be done.
VW main dealer quoted £1950 & 3 weeks!!!
ClickMechanic quoted £1150 & could do it within a couple of days!
I wanted someone to actually assess if replacement was required, not just take my money and fit new parts (or say they did...). I needed my car for work, I could not wait a week but really hated the thought of probably having to pay over the odds using an unknown (to me) garage from the "internet" and possibly being ripped off.
I was sceptical but my concerns were unfounded. Paul did a great job, using top brand parts. He also got me back on the road over a week quicker than ANYONE I could find. He kept me informed, did what he said he would and did it all properly.
Without hesitation I will be recommending ClickMechanic and especially Paul Smith from Newquay Motors for a great job, at a fair price - completed quickly.
Thank you very much - you will be seeing me again!“

Want to learn more about Flywheel replacements?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does a flywheel do?

The flywheel is fitted on the engine's crankshaft. It acts as a plate onto which the clutch's pressure plate grips, as such when the clutch is engaged it allows for power to be transferred from the engine to the car's gearbox. Subsequently transferring engine power to the wheels. At the same time the flywheel also has a function as a component that ensures a continuous and balanced power delivery from the engine. Apart from this the flywheel's starter ring gear (the teeth along the outer edge) acts as a large gear into which the starter motor's gear grips, enabling the starter motor to turn over the engine when you start the car.

How do you know there is something wrong with the flywheel?

*When the clutch slips whilst driving.
*When you cannot change gear.
*Transmission makes an unusual noise whilst engaging/disengaging the clutch.
*When the starter motor struggles to rotate the flywheel.

When should you consider a flywheel replacement?

A flywheel replacement is normally recommended when changing the clutch. In most cases one will find that when the clutch is worn or damaged it may have affected the flywheel. Not replacing the flywheel at the same time may then lead to damage to the new clutch. Hence the need for a replacement at the same time, which is recommended by most mechanics.

Signs of juddering or vibrations when depressing clutch pedal are normally a sign that there may be something wrong with the flywheel, especially if problems appear in first gear. Apart from that, the flywheel's starter ring gear (the teeth around the out edge of the plate) can get damaged due to wear. Sometimes a tooth will break, preventing the starter motor's gear to grip properly leading to starting problems on the car.

Cars nowadays are fitted either with a dual mass flywheel or the more conventional flywheel. The dual mass flywheel is more prone to wear, and in general will have to be replaced more often over the lifetime of a car. An option that is open for some cars is the conversion of the dual mass flywheel to a solid flywheel, which is cheaper.

Of course, if you suspect that you may need a flywheel replacement but are not sure, it is advisable to have a professional mechanic assess the situation first. In any case, always make sure to follow the manufacturer's guidelines.

What happens during an flywheel replacement?

*Mechanic will inspect and test the functionality of the clutch and flywheel.
*If necessary, the mechanic will advise if flywheel needs replacing.
*Mechanic separates gearbox from the engine, and will replace the flywheel if necessary.
*The mechanic will advise if other components like the clutch plate need to be replaced, and can provide a quote.
*The mechanic will rejoin the engine and gearbox.
*Mechanic checks the operation of the flywheel and clutch combination and will test drive car.
*Mechanic will make adjustments if necessary.

How much does a flywheel replacement cost?

The cost of a flywheel replacement will depend on your car and what parts the manufacturer recommends as being required for the replacement. In almost all occasions mechanics will advise to change the clutch at the same time. You could save up to 50% on your flywheel replacement versus franchise dealers with ClickMechanic
