To see a range of Flywheel for your car please enter your registration number into the search box to the left. Alternatively, start a new search for car parts here.
The flywheel is the key part of your cars transmission system. When the clutch is not being pressed, the clutch disc remains in contact with the flywheel, meaning that the engine is attached to the transmission input shaft.
Upon the pedal being pressed, the clutch disengages from the engine and thus the transmission system is no longer in operation. The flywheel utilises friction against the clutch plate to decide the amount of force that the clutch is capable of handling. If the flywheel cracks, becomes worn or gets contaminated with oil then this friction is diminished and this leads to the gears slipping. When you feel this beginning to happen, then it’s a clear sign that your flywheel is ailing and needs to be replaced.
