Acura Clutch Kit
In order to transfer the power from the engine to the manual transmission in your Acura, a complex system known as a clutch is used. The Acura clutch kit uses a high friction material on the clutch disc to receive power from the flywheel of the engine. When the clutch pedal is in its upward position, constant pressure is held on the clutch disc by the pressure plate, which is essentially a large spring. As the clutch pedal is pressed down, the release bearing approaches the Acura clutch kit, pressing the fingers of the pressure plate to reduce the force applied to the clutch disc. The clutch disc then pulls away from the flywheel. With the Acura clutch kit fully disconnected from the engine, the process of changing gears can now be completed without damaging the engine or the transmission. However, as the clutch disc moves away from or towards the flywheel, they are rotating at differing speeds, and this will cause the clutch disc to wear down from friction. When added to the metal on metal contact of the release bearing pushing into the pressure plate, the Acura clutch kit will need to be replaced on a regular basis, often every few years, though it depends highly on how the driver uses the clutch. Our online catalog will have the proper replacement for almost any Acura, at a significant savings over the price of the dealership part. Our basic Acura clutch kit consists of a new clutch disc, pressure plate, release bearing, and a handy clutch alignment tool. The Acura clutch kit can be ordered through our convenient web site or with a simple toll-free phone call to one of our employees, making it possible to place your order at any time of the day or night.
