A clutch is a mechanical device that provides for the transmission of power (and therefore usually motion) from one component (the driving member) to another (the driven member) when engaged, but can be disengaged.
Clutches are used whenever the transmission of power or motion must be controlled either in amount or over time (e.g., electric screwdrivers limit how much torque is transmitted through use of a clutch; clutches control whether automobiles transmit engine power to the wheels).
When your clutch is faulty it can manifest in a number of ways here are some of the most common:
1. Having to rev the engine excessively to get the car to move
2. Difficult to change gear and banging noise when the clutch is engaged / dis-engaged
3. A squealing noise from the engine bay when pulling away or changing gear.
If you have any of these symptoms you should get your vehicle checked straight away.
