How Does a Hydraulic Clutch Operate?

Answer

When the clutch pedal is pushed down the flywheel is spun into motion. This in turn operates the pressure plate to disengage the clutch disc and stop drive shaft from rotating. The clutch contains a reservoir of hydraulic fluid, which, when the clutch is pressed during gear changes, is pressurized. It activates the clutch plate to disengage one gear and re-engage another.
