The clutch belongs to the transmission system of the car. When the driver depresses the clutch pedal, the clutch will disengage. When the clutch pedal is lifted, the clutch will engage.
The clutch is installed on the engine flywheel, the pressure plate of the clutch is fixed on the engine flywheel, and there is a clutch plate between the flywheel and the pressure plate. There is a spline in the middle of the clutch plate, a transmission shaft is fixed, and the transmission shaft is the power input shaft of the gearbox. There is a diaphragm spring and a release bearing on the pressure plate.
When the clutch pedal is depressed, the release bearing will bear against the diaphragm spring, causing the diaphragm spring to tilt, and the clutch plate will be separated from the pressure plate. After the clutch pedal is lifted, the release bearing does not resist the diaphragm spring. At this point, the diaphragm spring will return and the pressure plate will contact the clutch plates.
If the pressure plate is damaged, it is necessary to separate the engine from the transmission and lift the entire transmission from the vehicle when replacing it. Only then can the platen be replaced.
