Download Subaru Clutch Replacement Clutch disks, pressure plates and release bearings, just as brake linings, brake rotors and drums, are all wear items. Sooner or later they reach the end of their useful life and require replacement. We won’t go into the symptoms of a worn-out clutch here. If you’ve been in the auto repair business for more than five minutes, you already know the symptoms. After all, technicians have been replacing worn-out clutch components for as long as there have been vehicles on the road.
