Clutch Bearing

Clutch Bearing Operation:

A bearing that decreases friction between the clutch fork and the pressure plate. It's moved into the center of the pressure plate causing the pressure plate to pull away from the clutch disc, releasing the clutch disc from the flywheel. When the pedal is released, spring pressure inside the pressure plate pushes forward on the clutch disc to lock the disc, flywheel and pressure plate together. The engine can then rotate the transmission shaft and gears, the drivetrain and the vehicle's wheels.

How To Instructions:

Inspect - Check for obvious problems.
Replace - Out with the old, in with the new.
