One of the most important parts of the clutch system is the release bearing. This tiny part is responsible for initiating the action that actually engages the clutch. Because it is so important, you will want to be certain that you get a high quality replacement when the time comes, so install a Sachs Release Bearing. Sachs manufactures clutch components for over 500 different automakers, so you can be certain that they have the replacement Sachs Release Bearing for your application. The Sachs Release Bearing sits on the shaft that holds all of the mechanical clutch components. When the slave cylinder action is initiated, the release bearing presses against the pressure plate, drawing the clutch disc away from the flywheel, allowing you to change gears. The release bearing is one of the most common failures of the clutch. Because replacing any part of the clutch is such a major job, it is usually recommended that you replace the entire system when you have it open. The Sachs Release Bearing is offered as part of a larger Sachs clutch kit. In addition to a Sachs Release Bearing, the clutch kit will contain a replacement clutch disc, pressure plate, and clutch alignment tool.
