The clutch pressure plate has a very important effect on the driving of the car. Many car owners will know this, but few car owners will know that the clutch pressure plate needs to be replaced regularly, and there are many places to pay attention to when using it.

There are friction linings on the clutch pressure plate, just like the brake linings on the wheels, which are made of very wear-resistant asbestos and copper wire. The friction linings of the pressure plate also have the lowest allowable thickness. After the driving distance is long, the friction plate on the pressure plate The friction plate should also be replaced. The original friction plate replacement can be purchased as a spare part and replaced by yourself. Now, you buy the pressure plate sub-assembly with the friction plate installed. You don't need to change the friction plate by yourself, just change the clutch pressure plate. In order to reduce the loss of the clutch disc, there is a correct way to use the clutch pedal. Just don't half-depress the clutch pedal. In this way, the clutch disc is in a semi-clutched state, that is to say, the friction between the flying disc and the pressure plate. If the clutch pedal is fully depressed, the flywheel and the clutch pressure plate are completely cut, and there is no friction between the two. If the clutch pedal is fully lifted, the flywheel and the clutch pressure plate are fully integrated. Although there is friction, there is basically no friction. Therefore, the clutch pedal cannot be half-depressed.

Replace the clutch disc and pressure plate under normal conditions. However, the wear of the clutch disc is also related to the driving habits of the driver. Different habits will bring different loads on the clutch disc. Some people use it well and can change it every few years. If it is not good, it can be replaced every six months. It has to be changed, especially for novices. They are not skilled at starting and shifting gears, and they wear out the clutch. Usually need to be replaced in the following situations: for example, you can’t run at high speed, and you can only run 80-90 kilometers when you step on the accelerator (because the clutch is slipping); another example is the feeling of shaking back and forth when you start with the first gear; and when you step on or lift the clutch If there is a sense of jerky, etc., it needs to be replaced in these cases.
