The clutch consists of a clutch pressure plate, clutch disc and the drive system. Pressure and clutch disc placed at the flywheel.

When switched on, the pressure plate presses the driven plate under the influence of the diaphragm spring to the flywheel and closes the kinematic chain between the motor and gearbox.

The gearbox casing is clutch fork. It is mounted maintenance free thrust bearing, which is turned off when the clutch is pressed against the pressure plate.

Clutch on all petrol models with front-wheel drive to 9/89 MY. and all models wagon through a cable. All-wheel drive and diesel variants, and all cars with 10/89 Vol. (except wagon) has a hydraulic clutch. To plug the clutch slave cylinder piston abuts the hydraulic system. When squeezing the clutch pedal through the piston rod in the master cylinder pressure is generated, which is carried by pipeline to the hydraulic slave cylinder. The piston of the working cylinder through the plug presses the release bearing to the spring of a press disk and takes him a little bit. In this way, the clutch disc between the flywheel and the pressure plate is released and the kinematic chain between the motor and gear box opens. The hydraulic system is filled with brake fluid, which is filled through a common expansion tank (depending on the model can be set and a separate tank).
