Car Gear Shift


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

Clutch failure is a common automotive issue, and our service technicians here at Rangiora Mazda are fully qualified to assess, repair or replace a clutch on any make or model.

The clutch transfers the rotating motion of the engine through to the gearbox. When the clutch pedal is pressed, the drive from the engine is disconnected from the gearbox which allows the car to roll freely without the engine powering it. This allows the smooth change of gears, both up and down while driving.

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 and the engine revving with little to no apparent increase in speed.

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