Clutch & Dual Mass Flywheels

The flywheel is the interface between the clutch system and the engine. When your foot is off the clutch pedal, the clutch disc presses against the flywheel, locking the engine to the transmission. When you apply pressure to the clutch pedal the flywheel is released, disengaging the transmission from the engine. It is the amount of friction between the flywheel and the clutch plate that determines how much energy the clutch can hold. If the surface of the flywheel is damaged by cracks or grooves, or if it accumulates a build-up of oil, it will not be able to produce enough friction when it spins against the clutch disc; this can cause the gears to slip.

Most vehicle manufacturers now use dual mass flywheels to help reduce engine vibration and eliminate the transmission of that vibration to the drive train. This has been done mainly for driver comfort but also helps with fuel economy and in some cases helps to protect certain parts of the transmission

We are able to offer these Genuine O.E clutch kits, slave cylinders and dual mass flywheels at extremely competitive prices.
