Question about DBA Disc Brakes of Australia 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe - 4WD, 2.7L V6 - DBA 4000 Series Rotors
I can only think of a few things that would cause the pressure plate on a clutch to wear out prematurely.
1. The springs on the pressure plate are worn and and allowing the clutch to constantly slip when it should be fully engaged. This would not only cause the flywheel to wear faster but would also cause it to over heat and warp which would again cause it to wear out faster.
2. Your clutch is not adjusted properly and is either not fully disengaging when you have the clutch pushed in all the way, or is not fully engaging the clutch when you have your foot off of it. This would not only cause the flywheel to wear faster but would also cause it to over heat and warp which would again cause it to wear out faster.
3. Your friction plate (the one between the pressure plate and the flywheel) is warped. And again, this would not only cause the flywheel to wear faster but would also cause it to over heat and warp which would again cause it to wear out faster.
4. You either:
a. keep feathering the clutch a lot while stopped at stops
b. are not pushing the clutch in all the way when you do push it.
c. always high rev the engine and let out the clutch way to slow
d. one of a multitude of other bad habits people do using a clutch
I am assuming you know what you are doing when using a clutch but had to throw #4 in there because of the horrors I have seen with people using a clutch. That being said
