DRIVELINE MODIFIES & TRANSMITS THE POWER/TORQUE TO THE WHEELS OF THE AUTOMOBILE. COMPONENTS OF DRIVELINE • CLUTCH • PROPELLOR SHAFT • DIFFERENTIAL • AXLE SHAFTS • WHEELS • TYRES SYSTEMS IN AN AUTOMOBILE A.

COMFORT SYSTEM • HVAC/AC/HEATER SYSTEM • SEATING/UPHOLSTRY/FACIA/INSTRUMENTS • AUDIO/VIDEO/GPS CLUTCH SYSTEM CLUTCH IS THE CRUCIAL LINK BETWEEN THE POWER PLANT (ENGINE) AND THE DRIVELINE THE PURPOSE OF THE CLUTCH IS TO LINK OR DELINK(ENGAGE OR DIS-ENGAGE) THE ENGINE FROM THE DRIVELINE, AS DESIRED BY THE DRIVER COMPONENTS OF CLUCH • CLUTCH ACTUATION MECHANISM • LINK TYPE • CABLE TYPE • HYDRAULIC TYPE • CLUTCH CABLE • CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER • CLUTCH SLAVE CYLINDER • RELEASER BEARING • CLUTCH PRESSURE PLATE • CLUTCH DRIVEN PLATE CLUTCH SYSTEM ENGAGED CLUTCH PEDAL -FREE LINKED DIS-ENGAGED CLUTCH PEDAL -PRESSED ENGINE GEAR BOX CLUTCH DE-LINKED CLUTCH ACTUATION MECHANISM ENGINE GEAR BOX CLUTCH ACTUATION MECHANISM The clutch operating mechanism transfers the force exerted by the driver at the clutch pedal to the clutch and either engages or disengages the clutch. Clutch actuation mechanism can be classified as : 1. Mechanical Clutch - Where the driver’s foot effort is transmitted to the clutch through a set of levers and links 2. Cable Clutch - Where the driver’s foot effort is transmitted to the clutch through a cable. 3. Hydraulic Clutch - Where the driver’s foot effort is transferred to a hydraulic oil medium, which in turn operates the clutch through master cylinder & slave cylinder. Pedal efforts are lower & doesnot require clutch pedal free play adjustments.

CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER - Converts driver’s foot effort to hydraulic pressure and transmits the pressure to clutch slave cylinder 2. CLUTCH SLAVE CYLINDER - Receives the hydraulic pressure from Clutch master cylinder and moves the clutch fork to either disengage or engage the clutch mechanism 3. CLUTCH PIPES/TUBES - The connection between the Clutch master cylinder and Clutch slave cylinder, transmitting the hydraulic fluid. 4. RESERVOIR - The storage for clutch fluid CLUTCH MEC...
