The clutch is a crucial component in your vehicle which turns your wheels. In a modern vehicle it sits between the engine and the gearbox. The clutch allows you to change gear and generates power. It connects two or more rotating shafts, in a manual vehicle it controls the connection between the shaft in both the engine and wheels.
