Clutch issues may be caused from a broken flywheel, faulty clutch plate or leaky hoses. Symptoms include grinding or chirping noises, problems getting into or changing gears and clutch sticking.
Similar to your brakes, your clutch uses a plate with friction material which gets worn over time and must be replaced. This procedure is a normal part of maintaining your vehicle but you might also encounter unexpected problems.
If you notice any of the symptoms above, or another else is amiss, bring your vehicle in for an inspection before it gets any worse. We are located in Frankston and serve many customers in the surrounding areas as well.
