The clutch pedal is what a driver of a manual transmission presses in order to change gears. Drivers who prefer more control over their vehicles often prefer manual transmissions. However, clutch pedals wear out over time because of the friction built up while driving and changing gears. This inevitably creates clutch pedal problems.
There are many things that can affect the clutch. The most common cause of premature clutch disc wear comes from the driver riding the clutch, and this creates clutch slippage. If the clutch makes a squealing noise that goes away when the clutch pedal is engaged, the most likely culprit is a worn release bearing. If this is the case, the bearing needs to be replaced as soon as possible to ensure no further damage is done. Lastly, if the clutch pedal will not release, it means the slave cylinder is beginning to go bad or the linkage is misaligned.
