All three components are manufactured in accordance with stringent Mercedes-Benz standards of quality and matched precisely to the applicable drivetrain. The dimensional accuracy, robustness and reliability of the components of the kit ensure not only eliminate juddering when you drive off, but also reduces noise, vibrations and wear. A Mercedes-Benz replacement clutch kit incorporates all the latest technological advancements from series production and is remanufactured ready for installation.
The clutch is the link between the engine and transmission. Its components interact to ensure that engine torque is reliably transferred to the transmission. To enable the driver to either change gear or coast the vehicle to a standstill, the clutch disengages the engine power. When you drive off, however, the clutch pressure plate pushes the clutch plate harder and harder against the flywheel through spring force. This allows the speed of the transmission input shaft to be adjusted to that of the clutch.
Like the brake, the clutch is one of the spare parts in a vehicle subjected to the most stress. That is because its function means that it is exposed to high pressures and temperatures.
This wear sometimes leads to defects, which can be identified by the following symptoms:
The genuine clutch kit as a spare part saves time and money, because the quick installation process cuts non-operational time. The remanufactured clutch sets from Mercedes-Benz are available at short notice and also environmentally friendly thanks to the sparing use of resources.
