Clutches

We offer a range of high quality new clutches from Europe's leading clutch manufacturers. All parts fitted carry a 2 year or 24,000 mile warranty (excluding taxis, driving schools and commercial vehicles).

Unlike some other clutch fitting companies, AMA MOTORS employ qualified technicians so this often complex task that involves extensive stripping down of engine and gear box components is carried out by a competent person and guaranteed.
