Your BMW is a combination of state-of-the-art materials, precision engineering, and old-world craftsmanship. However, like all other automobiles out there, it will suffer from wear and tear to many systems. The clutch is one of the most common and it’s important to get BMW clutch service from a team of specialists trained in how to properly maintain and repair your vehicle.
The clutch is part of the transmission. You’ll find them in both manual and automatic transmissions – they’re what allows your car to speed up or slow down by changing gears safely. If you have a manual transmission, you must press the clutch pedal in and then shift gears by hand. If you have an automatic transmission, it shifts on its own.
Over time and through normal wear and tear, the clutch will slowly degrade. The material on the clutch plate wears off and eventually there is not enough present to allow the gears to change properly. In that instance, you might notice symptoms of a failing clutch.
It’s important to note that the symptoms of a failing or bad clutch differ between automatic and manual transmissions. To help you pinpoint the right symptoms for your vehicle, we’ve broken things down:
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is definitely time for BMW clutch service. In the case of a manual transmission, the most likely course of action will be to replace the clutch plate. For an automatic transmission, the problem could be something very different, including low fluid, dirty fluid, or even a failed sensor.
BMW clutch service is often avoidable, at least until well down the road. The key to that is having regular transmission services. Routinely changing the fluid and inspecting the transmission can add tens of thousands of miles to your car’s lifespan before a clutch replacement is necessary.
