Honda Vezel Dual Clutch Problem
Honda announces Dual dry clutch in collaboration with LUK
When Honda first announced about dual clutch transmissions in its hybrid cars, it sounded like Honda was either late into the competition or maybe it was following a perfectionist approach before launching it. But later it was found that dual-clutch transmissions are nightmares specifically the one in Hybrid Vezel. Keeping that in regard Honda recalled over 80K cars for either a software update or a change in transmission.
Why replace the Dual dry clutch?
Honda Vezel usually requires services at 80000km. Honda recalled autos with dual-clutch transmissions for the third time after the first two being in October 2013 and December 2013 respectively. Usually, the HR-V or RU1 and RU2 models are not prone to this issue due to the fact that they comprise a conventional CV-T system instead of the dual-clutch. According to the auto news Honda, Fit GP5 is also prone to this issue.
It is also noted by some exerts that it happens when the hybrid car has a lot of travel with the engine consistently running and heating up the clutch system. Though some dual clutch fluid or oil can cool the system but is not in large quantity and can heat up. So in case of heavy traffic or travelling in a sports mode, the clutch oil level will reduce and hybrid car will display an error message. The key here is to stop the car up to an hour to allow the system to cool down.

Honda Vezel Dual Clutch Actuator fluid Flush and replace @ every 40,000 km
Because the clutch actuator works twice as hard, it is preferable to change at these intervals based on local driving circumstances. In addition, moisture has accumulated. Before the modification, the fluid boiling points are read and recorded. The overheated clutch fluid seeping from the actuator circuit is shown in the image below. Deposits are also formed as a result of the clutch wearing out as a result of hard driving.
Vezel Transmission fluid DW-1 @ every 30,000 km
Because of the temperature buildup in the transmission and heat transfer from the dual clutch assembly during heavy traffic, it’s best to replace at these recommended intervals (causing the vehicle to continuously stop and start).
Flush and replace brake fluid @ every 60,000 km
A fresh fluid change can save you money on brake part replacements and maintenance because braking systems are equipped with ABS, VSA, EPB, and are connected with the Honda Sensing system. This will also ensure that the internal hydraulic moving parts are in good working order, increasing the system’s dependability.
