Hearing Noises When Changing Gears Is A Warning Sign Of Clutch Repair

Clutch repair is a common automotive failure, and our service technicians here at Rangiora Mazda are fully qualified to assess, repair or replace a clutch on any make or model. We only use Genuine Mazda Parts & Accessories, which are professionally engineered, manufactured and tested to meet Mazda’s arduous high standards.

The clutch connects the engine to the wheels, and when pushed in, allows the car to roll freely without the engine powering it. A clutch also ensures the engine transfers all of its power to the wheels, and allows the smooth change of gears, both up and down.

Some common signs your clutch is in need of repair or replacing include difficulty in changing gears, strange noises when changing gears, such as a rattling or grinding, revving the engine, but there’s no apparent increase in speed, and a sudden loss of acceleration.

A damaged clutch can be very dangerous on the roads. If you notice any of these warning signs, give Rangiora Mazda a call today for a check-up.
