Manchester is a city and metropolitan borough in Greater Manchester, located north of the Cheshire Plain and south and west of the Pennines, with an estimated population of 545,000.
Manchester is a popular cultural centre, with performing arts and live music venues that include the Palace Theatre, Manchester Opera House, the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester Arena and Manchester Academy.
Manchester has provided iconic bands such as The Smiths, Joy Division, The Verve, M People and The 1975, and in the height of the 1980s the ‘Madchester’ scene gave us The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, Inspiral Carpets and James.
Canal Street has been the home for an LGBTQ+ community since 1940, with bars and clubs attracting around 20k visitors each weekend, and the Manchester Pride festival is celebrated every August.
It wouldn’t be fair to talk about Manchester without mentioning the city’s football rivalry: you’re either blue or you’re red, City or United—with both teams holding an extensive list of silverware and titles.
The Mercedes A-Class is estimated to be the most popular car in Manchester, according to data provided between 2012 to 2018 by ownership and postcode.
Close on its heels—and in order of popularity—are the Volkswagen Golf, Volkswagen Polo, Mercedes C-Class Saloon and Nissan Qashqai.
There are approximately 218,000 licensed vehicles in Manchester, with some of the most popular models including the Mini, Ford Kuga and the Kia Sportage.
There are a total of 38 Fixter garages in the Manchester area, all ready and waiting to provide you with a fantastic quote for your car service, MOT and a wide range of vehicle repairs.
Fixter garages service the following postcodes and more, in and around the Manchester area:
The clutch is a solid metal disc that couples the crankshaft and flywheel to the gearbox’s clutch shaft. The clutch is located between the engine and transmission to temporarily disconnect the engine drive from the gearbox.
A clutch kit usually contains all the elements to replace and rejuvenate your clutch and its performance: usually a clutch disc, pressure plate, flywheel and a throw race or release bearings. A clutch kit will contain the correct parts for a particular make and model of car and is often cheaper than buying the components individually.
There isn’t a typical time or set mileage suggested to replace a clutch kit, as it can depend on both the car and your driving style. Most clutches are designed to last approximately 60k miles, yet they can have a healthy life covering mileages anywhere between 30k and 100k.
A damaged or broken clutch will affect your car’s driving ability to the point where it could fail its MOT. Testing doesn’t include an examination of the engine, clutch or gearbox, so if it appears to be working adequately, then it shouldn’t affect the test result.
A clutch will wear out over time through continual use. The disc thickness reduces, which affects the amount of force the pressure plate can apply to the clutch disc against the flywheel. Incorrect use over extended periods will impact the lifespan and cause unnecessary problems. Slippage can also be caused by reduced tension in the pressure plate’s springs.
If you feel a loss or inappropriate delivery of power when using the accelerator, it could be due to a damaged or worn clutch.
If you can’t change gears or it feels like there is unusual grinding and friction when trying, your clutch isn’t separating the engine drive from the gearbox sufficiently.
If there is no delivery of power to the engine from the accelerator, then your clutch could be the problem.
If the transmission makes unhealthy grinding noises when you try to use the clutch to engage or disengage the engine, there’s a strong chance that your clutch isn’t operating as it should.
I used fixter for the first time today it is a fantastic service my car was picked up on time and deliverd back to me well before the time slot I was very pleased with the service they provided for me and it was no hassle for me to go out and find a garage for my M O T I sat in my house did things ...
"I really can't rate this service high enough. Dan Johnson picked my car up at around 8.30am - he was pleasant and polite. Off it went to the garage, I got a text 20 minutes later to say it had arrived and around an hour later another text to say it was on it's way back - with a nice shiny ""Pass"...
