Is your clutch ready to unleash the dreaded eggy smell

This week we have had vehicle owners ringing us and asking us why does it smell of egg in my vehicle. Well this is a classic sign of clutch burn out or it is ready to pop. The latest vehicle having clutch problems is this Ford Focus pictured below in our garage workshop.

This vehicle had the dreaded eggy smell however a number of other symptoms as well. The clutch was continuously slipping when changing gears, the customer no longer knew where his bite point was and the clutch felt very spongy.

The Ford Focus vehicle owner also lifted the bonnet up and removed the bell housing and could see lots of black dust inside, when he told us that we knew it was a clutch problem.

Our garage pictured below is kitted out with all of the latest clutch technology.

We invest heavily in clutch technology helping us deliver a fast and reliable clutch replacement service.
