What is the Clutch Cable all about?

The clutch cable forms a connection between the clutch and other parts of the gearbox, whereby the cable transfers the engine’s power to the gearbox. Each time you press the clutch, it interrupts the transmission briefly while you select the right gear. You change the gear when moving from a stationary to mobile state, or when driving along the road. The clutch cable allows you to press the clutch and make that transition smoothly.

The clutch cable is made of a steel-wire core sliding encased within an outer shell. It works under the high pressure that you exert on the clutch pedal and is susceptible to wearing out and breaking.

Keep in mind:

  • The clutch cable may only need a slight adjustment so it works as intended.
  • Some cars have an automatic adjustment system built into the gear mechanism while others need manual adjustment.
  • If the clutch is unable to engage or release properly because of a faulty clutch cable, you risk damage to your transmission system.
  • Remember to release the clutch completely when driving and refrain from resting your foot on it.

How it's done:

  • The vehicle is raised and supported on jack stands
  • The defective cable is removed from transmission and clutch pedal
  • The new clutch cable is installed and connected to transmission and clutch pedal
  • The clutch is adjusted and exercised to make it operate smoothly without binding
  • The vehicle is removed from jack stands and road tested for proper operation

Our recommendation:

While your clutch cable should last you for at least two years, have our expert mechanics check it every time you have your car scheduled for routine maintenance. Because clutch cables are quite elastic and wear out gradually, without maintenance the clutch cable in your car may suddenly snap and result in costly repairs.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Clutch Cable?

  • Clutch pedal does not respond unless under excessive pressure
  • Clutch pedal remains depressed and does not regain its proper position
  • Transmission is difficult to shift

How important is this service?

If the clutch cable of your car is not functioning optimally, the clutch can slip. When you’re accelerating while driving, having released the clutch pedal, the revolutions of the engine will go higher, but the speed of your car will not increase in proportion. If this continues for too long, you could risk damage to the complete clutch kit. It is advisable to keep the clutch cable in good working order.
