Over time clutches can become worn and burn out or they may even not work at their best. Putting strain on the clutch is also caused by certain drivers who ride on the clutch and use a lot of throttle. This in turn lowers the lifespan of the clutch.

  • Air in the hydraulic line
  • Broken clutch cable
  • Master clutch cylinder leaks
  • Mismatched clutch parts (from another garage)

Clutch Repairs FAQ with R&L Motors – Widnes’ Clutch Repair Experts

Here at R&L Motors we are experts in all things related to vehicle repairs and servicing. We get asked quite a lot of questions relating to Clutch Repairs, such as how long they take and even how to notice when a clutch is at the end of its lifespan. Obviously because the clutch is one of the most required parts in the vehicle, once it does break, you will need it repairing/replacing ASAP, the following link shows a few of the rules you are meant to follow when on the roads: Click here

 How can I tell if I need my clutch replacing or repairing?

Below are some common signs that you might notice and if you do, you need a new clutch fitted. The signs include:

  • Changing gears is harder than it usually is or should be
  • There’s a grinding sound when you change gears (both up and down)
  • You can increase the revs in the engine, but your car barely increases in speed (this can be dangerous if you’re planning on using motorways or you use them often)
  • Engine revs climb or fall seemingly at random
  • The clutch may seem to ‘slip’ causing a loss of acceleration, or a complete loss of drive or you may result in stalling the car fully.

How much does car clutch replacement cost?

The cost of clutch replacement varies depending on the nature of the problem and the model of car you’re driving. Our expert clutch fitters will let you know what we need to do and how much it will cost before we start work. Sometimes it’s just the clutch pads that need replacing and these won’t cost you as much as a brand new clutch.

We only ever use quality parts:

We only ever use parts that match manufacturers’ original specification for clutch fitting. We never use cheap clutches that are prone to problems like some dealers do. We do it this way so that you shouldn’t be having any more problems with the replaced part for a good while.

Can I get a quote online?

We make sure you only pay for the work you need. This means we can’t advise you of clutch fitting prices online – we need to carry out a thorough inspection of your vehicle’s clutch system so we can give you a fair and accurate quote based on the problem that needs solving. This is because the clutch is quite a complicated piece of your vehicle and expands from the interior of the car through to the engine itself.

How to Maintain your car’s exterior image – a brief guide with R&L Motors


Here at R&L Motors Widnes, we always enjoy giving helpful tips to our customers in the Widnes community, today we’ll be talking about how to maintain your cars exterior image. To keep your car looking as good as new and help maintain its value, one of the main areas to concentrate your time and effort on is the exterior. This is not only the first thing a potential buyer will notice, but if kept in good condition, could also extend the lifetime of the vehicle. Obviously we re now heading into the colder Autumn & Winter months, and with the inevitable road-gritting that goes hand in hand with this time of year, it is very important to make sure you keep your car’s paintwork spotless. If left for an extended period of time, the salt from the roads can lead to alloy wheel corrosion and rust spots appearing on your car’s bodywork, which is something we all want to try and avoid!


There are many causes that will make your car’s appearance look bad, the road-gritters is just one example of this, but there are other elements such; as bird droppings, tree sap, bugs and re-surfacing works, which could also cause damage to your car’s paintwork. The key to keeping your car’s exterior in tip top condition really couldn’t be simpler; wash it regularly, wax it often and make sure any paintwork scuffs and scratches are repaired as soon as they occur.


Here are some more of our top tips for maintaining your car’s paintwork:


  • Clean your alloys regularly during the Winter months to stop road salt causing corrosion.
  • Get any paintwork scratches and scuffs repaired asap – if left too long the damage will become much worse.
  • Be careful not to rub dirt and grime into the car paintwork when you wash it, as it could cause minor scratches.
  • When washing your car, make sure you use products designed for the purpose to avoid any potentially costly mishaps!
  • Keep your distance from the car in front – not just for safety reasons, but also to avoid those nasty stone chips.
  • Make sure you wash your car regularly to remove dirt before it builds up and becomes much harder to wash off.
  • Wax your car’s paintwork every 3 months to help maintain colour and shine, but it may be necessary to wax more regularly during the harsher Winter months.
