Mazda clutch kit is a complete set of clutch parts which you can use to replace the original clutch of the vehicle. These parts are manufactured by different brands and they are sold in different automotive stores. Though all of these brands say that they are of equal quality, but you must take some information from the market before making the purchase.
The clutch parts are sold either on individual parts basis, or you can buy the entire kit. Some people go for replacing the defective parts of the system thinking that he is saving a lot of money. But his cost will be more in the long run. It is always advisable to replace the whole clutch kit, rather than replacing a few parts. It ensures the proper function and durability of the clutch system. Your vehicle will run smoother and your clutch will get a much longer life.
The clutch basically creates a connection between the transmission line of the automobile and the flywheel of the engine. When we press the clutch on the paddle, the transmission shaft gets decoupled from the engine. In that case, the engine output cannot go to the wheels and that will make the wheels stop rotating, in spite of the fact that the engine is on. Once the clutch is released, it again gets engaged. You will not be able to change gears if the clutch is engaged. Hence you will have to first disengage the clutch and then you will be able to shift the gears.
You must know which clutch will be suitable for your Mazda car before you go for replacement of the clutch. If the clutch is wrongly chosen and properly not adjusted, it will hamper the mechanical functioning of the engine.
If you are not confident about the choice of clutch, you can ask a customer service expert and he can guide you in the selection process. Though there are many manufacturers, Sachs is the leading brand maker in this category.
The price of the product depends as usual on the model of the clutch required. If you use 1997-2006 Audi A4, then the price of the clutch kit will be $310. But for the versions like 1993-1995 Honda Civic del Sol, the price is much lower and stands at only $117. But before making a final purchase, have a look at the different websites and get an idea about the prices offered.
