How Does a Clutch Work?

If you’re a fan of cars, then you likely are a fan of a good old-fashioned manual transmission. Most people in the world probably know what a clutch does, but that is usually the extent of it. If you were to ask your average person on the street how a clutch actually works, you would have a hard time getting a good answer.

With the slow disappearance of manual transmissions from modern cars, that also means that clutch mechanisms are going away as well… This video below takes an in-depth engineering approach complete with animations looking into how exactly a clutch works. Whether you’re a car nut or just want to step up your mechanical knowledge, this is for you.
