To overcome the challenges of inertia, the transmission must supply varying levels of power to the wheels of your Buick, at varying speeds. To make this possible, the manual transmission uses the Buick clutch kit and its related parts to facilitate gear changes, without causing damage to the engine or the transmission. This assembly consists of a clutch disc, pressure plate, and release bearing. Most of the time, the Buick clutch kit is in the closed position, and the pressure plate is holding the clutch disc against the flywheel. When the clutch pedal is pressed, the release bearing is forced into the pressure plate, and clutch disc can then move away from the flywheel. With the engine disconnected from the transmission, with the open Buick clutch kit, the gear can safely be changed. In this setup, the clutch disc is the first item to fail, because friction will eventually wear it to the point that the power can no longer be transferred efficiently. Eventually, however, the other parts of the Buick clutch kit will fail, due to the friction on the pressure plate and release bearing. When it is necessary to replace the Buick clutch kit in your vehicle, you will find the correct replacement within the pages of our large online catalog for most vehicles. It includes the clutch disc, the pressure plate, and the release bearing.
