As stated in one of our posts, Clutch is a device used for interrupting power transmission, commonly between engine and gearbox in a car or an automobile.

If the clutch fails to disengage the clutch disk from the flywheel when the clutch pedal is pressed, it is referred to as a clutch drag.

Below are the common causes of drag clutch and how they can be remediated:-

#2. There could be a case of improper pedal adjustment hampering the movement of the release bearing.
The remedy to such problem is to simply correct the misadjusted pedal.

#3. Clutch dragging could be as a result of oil or grease on the driven plate facings.
The remedy is to fix new facings.
