A Sachs Clutch Kit can be used on Hyundai Elantras of model years 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006. A functional Clutch Kit helps the driver switch gears with the engine flywheel and friction discs; as the clutch is depressed, the flywheel and clutch plate move apart, disengaging the vehicle's motor from the drive train and allowing the engine to turn without turning the wheels. Clutch Kites enable a driver to change gears by temporarily unhooking the transmission from the engine. In cars with an automatic transmission, a Clutch Kit is built into your transmission system, while stick shifts call for the car owner to engage a clutch themselves, typically through the pedal by your brake pedal. While the clutch is a resilient system, over time the clutch plate can stop functioning and will need a new component. The Clutch Kit is an essential element within a vehicle's transmission enabling your current gear to be disengaged from your car's drive shaft so that another larger or lower gear to be applied. Hyundai Elantras from model years '96, '97, '98, '99, '00, '01, '02, '03, '04, '05 and '06 will work with this Clutch Kit. Other vehicles may not be compatible, and this element should not be installed in those cars or trucks.
