How does the clutch work?

1 minuteread

Clutch Work:

It transmits engine power to the gearbox and allows the transmission to be interrupted while a gear is chosen to maneuver faraway from a stationary position, or when gears are changed while the car is moving.

Most cars use a clutch operated either by fluid ( hydraulic ) or, more commonly, by a cable.

When a car is moving under power, the clutch is engaged. A pressure plate bolted to the flywheel exerts a relentless force, utilizing a diaphragm spring, on the driven plate.

Earlier cars have a series of coil springs at the rear of the pressure plate, rather than a diaphragm spring.

The driven (or friction) plate runs on a splined input shaft, through which the ability is transmitted to the gearbox. The plate has friction linings, almost like brake linings, on both its faces. This enables the drive to be obsessed smoothly when the clutch is engaged.

When the clutch is disengaged (pedal depressed), an arm pushes a release bearing against the middle of the diaphragm spring which releases the clamping pressure.

The outer part of the pressure plate, which features a large friction surface, then now not clamps the driven plate to the flywheel, therefore the transmission of power is interrupted and gears may be changed.

When the treadle is released, the bearing is withdrawn, and also the diaphragm-spring load all over again clamps the driven plate to the flywheel to resume the transmission of power.

Some cars have a hydraulically operated clutch. Pressure on the foot pedal inside the car activates a piston in an exceeding piston chamber, which transmits the pressure through a fluid-filled pipe to a slave cylinder mounted on the clutch housing.

The slave-cylinder piston is connected to the clutch release arm.
