There are some motorists who likes manual transmission because it gives them more control over their car and allows them to save on gas. If one opt for a VW vehicle then a VW clutch is perfect to go with that.

A clutch is needed because the engine spins all the time, but the car wheels don't. In order for a vehicle to stop without killing the engine, the wheels need to be disconnected from the engine somehow. The clutch allows the motorists to smoothly engage a spinning engine to a non-spinning transmission by controlling the slippage between them.

VW clutch works because of friction between a clutch plate and a flywheel. When one's foot is off the pedal, the springs push the pressure plate against the clutch disc, which in turn presses against the flywheel. This locks the engine to the transmission input shaft, causing them to spin at the same speed. The amount of force the clutch can hold depends on the friction between the clutch plate and the flywheel, and how much force the spring puts on the pressure plate. When the clutch pedal is pressed, a cable or hydraulic piston pushes on the release fork, which presses the throw-out bearing against the middle of the diaphragm spring. As the middle of the diaphragm spring is pushed in, a series of pins near the outside of the spring causes the spring to pull the pressure plate away from the clutch disc. This releases the clutch from the spinning engine.

The most common problem with VW clutch will encounter is that the friction material on the disc eventually wears out. The friction material on a clutch disc is very similar to the friction material on the pads of a disc brake, it wears away. When most or all of the friction material is gone, the clutch will start to slip, and eventually it won't transmit any power from the engine to the wheels. The VW clutch only wears while the clutch disc and the flywheel are spinning at different speeds. When they are locked together, the friction material is held tightly against the flywheel, and they spin in sync. So if a driver slips the clutch a lot, he will wear out his clutch a lot faster. Another problem sometimes associated with clutches is a worn throwout bearing. A rumbling noise whenever the clutch engages is usually a sure sign of this problem.

One can tell if a VW clutch needs to be replaced by starting the car in top gear with the hand brake on, then slowly try to let the clutch out. If the engine stalls, it means the clutch is in good shape. But if the car doesn't stall, it probably means the clutch will need to be replaced. If that will be the case, one can opt to get a clutch kit to remedy the problem. The VW clutch kit comes with a clutch disc or a clutch friction disc and clutch pressure plate. Some clutch kits already have pilot bushings or pilot bearings. The pressure plate contains a clutch plate, springs, cover and release fingers. Of the two types of pressure plates, the diaphragm-type is used more often than the spring-type pressure plate. Since the VW clutch kit is already complete, using it will be a better way in replacing the worn out clutch. This will make car performance better than before.
