Clutch Cable :
In simple words, the definition of the clutch cable is – The component forms the link between the clutch and other components of the gear box. As the name suggests, the cable assists in transferring the power of the engine to the gear box. Every time the clutch is activated by you, the transmission is interrupted when you select the perfect gear. The gear is changed as you change from the stationary to the mobile state or when you drive on the road. The clutch cable is the one, which you can use to press the clutch and perform the transition in a smooth phase.

The clutch cable is composed of a steel wire core which is housed in a shell. It is designed to work as per the pressure you put to the pedal. But beware, it can also brake or get worn out.

To be noted:

  • In case of a minor problem, the cable might need only a simple adjustment.
  • Few cars are built with automatic adjustment system as part of their gear mechanism, while some of the cars need manual adjustment.
  • If you sense the clutch cable has become faulty, you will not be able to engage or release the clutch, and then chances of damage to the transmission system.
  • Always do not forget to release the clutch entirely during a drive and always avoid the foot-on-pedal habit.


The clutch cable should last at least for duration of two years. Within the time period, do conduct an inspection by our mechanics for maintenance.
