An automobile clutch is a highly sophisticated mechanism that plays an important role of engaging and disengaging the transmission of motive power through the medium of clutch Disc lined with friction material.
The running feel of the motor vehicle is largely determined by the performance characteristics of the clutches.
Clutches vary in their structure and performance characteristics depending on whether it is an automatic or manual clutch, or whether it is a Two Wheelers or Four Wheelers clutch.
However irrespective of their shape or size, all automobiles clutches involve the use of high level of engineering technique.

Clutch is a device which helps in transmitting power from engine to the gearbox and subsequently to the drive wheels.

We need a clutch because the engine spins all the time and the vehicle wheels don’t. For a vehicle to stop without damaging the engine, the power being transmitted to wheels need to be discontinued from the engine somehow. The clutch allows to smoothly engage a spinning engine to a non-spinning transmission by controlling the slippage between them through subjecting itself to varying degrees.
