clutchplate clutch repair clutch replacement sunshine coast


WOW I bought my car in for a Quote on a clutch after I had a service at the local Nambour dealer I bought the car from and was told I need a clutch kit and the parts are not covered in our warranty. Bill was going to be $1600 on top of a $400 service on a Suzuki Alto. I took the car to Jose St and not only did I get good advice but he looked at the Alto and adjusted the clutch for free so it works without grinding the gears.

Excellent service turned up unannounced when my A/C packed up although they were busy they took the time to have a look and fixed it for me at no charge as it was a simple fix. They have won me and I will not need to look any further for a trustworthy mechanic.

Greg H.

Simply the BEST mechanics we have been to. Honest, timely & they gave me a full comprehensive report so I knew exactly what was happening with the car & they gave me a 10% seniors discount!

I had my brake pads done and they work great – no problems at all. Young guy was very friendly and dropped me at work and picked me up when the car was ready. Another chap went through every item on the invoice and explained what they did and why (they quoted first). Very good service.

Kay H.

Excellent guys and excellent old school service. Wouldn’t take my car anywhere else. Have even moved away and still take my car back there to be serviced. They are so very obliging, they keep you informed the whole way and will go out of their way to assist. You couldn’t ask for better mechanics.

Penny D.

These guys are awesome. So nice and friendly and the best thing of all they don’t rip you off and charge you for repairs that weren’t needed or necessary. Quick and easy to deal with. I would recommend them to anyone especially if you want things explained properly. Very pleased.

The team at Nambour Car Service go above and beyond their job description. They take the time to discuss your service needs and when the job has been completed they provide a comprehensive overview of the work that they have done both written and verbally. Our family have been customers of Nambour Car Service for a number of years. Denis runs a very professional service centre and has an excellent rapport with his customers.

Nev H.

For the last 5 years we have taken both of our European cars to Nambour Car Service and have been very happy with the service, price and quality of work. We do recommend.

Max R.

Great communication – very detailed rundown about every piece of work done, and love how they tell you about upcoming jobs. Very reliable and friendly service.


I came away very satisfied with the car service I received. The team were friendly and explained everything clearly. I appreciated the affordable price, honesty, integrity and peace of mind I was left with.

Clutch Repair & Clutch Replacement Sunshine Coast

Need clutch replacement or clutch repairs in Nambour?

Clutches in a manual drivetrains take a lot of abuse and depending on the car, driving style, load carrying and road conditions such as hilly areas, can wear out anywhere from 100,000 kms to 300,000 kms.

Clutch replacement is usually a labour intensive job as the gearbox and many other components need to be removed by auto service mechanics to access the clutch. Due to the nature of the job it is absolutely worthwhile replacing the rear main oil seal at the same time as this is a fairly cheap part in most cases and accessible when the clutch is removed. If it is not replaced and leaks later on, the entire car clutch repair job will need to be done over again. The clutch assembly is bolted onto the engine flywheel and uses the flywheel face as a friction surface.

It is imperative that the flywheel is machined at the same time to eliminate any clutch shudder, get full clutch contact and in most cases retain the warranty on the clutch. The days of replacing just a clutch plate are gone. These days the clutch assembly including the pressure plate, clutch plate, thrust bearing and spiggot bearing should always be replaced when carrying out clutch repairs to ensure a quality job.

There are many brands of clutch kits on the market and through trial and error, our Jose Street car service centre team of auto mechanics have found the best clutch repair products for your vehicle. Lesser products will give a poor clutch pedal feel, bearings will get noisy prematurely and the clutches will slip prematurely.

If you have ever put your foot down on the accelerator in gear and had the engine rev up with no increase in vehicle speed, you have felt your clutch slipping. For comprehensive clutch repairs and clutch replacement, contact our Sunshine Coast auto mechanics.
