The movement of your vehicle along the road relies on so many different moving parts within the clutch and gearbox, all working together in perfect harmony. Over time, these moving parts are bound to suffer from a little bit of wear and tear.


There are many signs that indicate that your vehicle may have developed some kind of problem with the clutch or gearbox, these can include:


Depressing the clutch pedal causes an odd noise

Depressing the clutch pedal causes an odd noise to stop
