Genuine Honda Accord 2.2 I-Dtec Diesel Clutch Kit & Genuine Honda Flywheel 2009-2015

Safety
In a car, you need a clutch because the engine rotates all the time but the car’s wheels do not. In order for a car to stop without stalling the engine, the wheels need to be disconnected from the engine. The clutch allows us to smoothly engage a rotating engine to a non-rotating transmission by controlling the slippage between them.

Performance
A clutch works because of friction between a clutch plate and a flywheel in transmitting the drive to the gearbox and finally the road wheels. Any loss of friction between the clutch plate and the engine flywheel will result in loss of traction and therefore road speed.

Facts
These parts are used during development and testing of the vehicle and as such deliver optimum performance and longevity.

Modern engines can be driven at extremely low rpms. The trend is toward ever increasing engine torques. Wind-tunnel-optimized bodies are creating less wind noise. New calculation methods are helping reduce vehicle weights and weight-saving concepts are boosting engine efficiency as well. The addition of a fifth or a sixth gear can also reduce fuel consumption. Thinner oils are making precise shifting easier. In short: The sources of noise are increasing and natural damping is decreasing. What has remained is the principle of the internal combustion engine whose cyclical combustion processes excite torsional vibrations in the drive train the unpleasant consequences of which are gear rattles and body booms.

Drivers who are accustomed to increased comfort no longer accept such background noises. The job of the clutch is now more important than ever  in addition to engaging and disengaging, it must effectively insulate the engines vibrations. Physically, this is easy to solve: The mass moment of inertia of the transmission must be increased without increasing the mass to be shifted. This dampens the engines torsional vibrations and brings about the desired comfort level. The process reduces load on the transmission at the same time.

The name says it all: The mass of the conventional flywheel was simply split in two. One part continues to belong to the engine’s mass moment of inertia, while the other part now increases the mass moment of inertia of the transmission. The two decoupled masses are linked by a spring/damping system. One clutch disc, without a torsion damper, between the secondary mass and the transmission handles the engaging and disengaging functions. A favorable side effect is that the transmission is easier to shift because of the low mass to be synchronized, and there is less synchronization wear.
