This chapter considers the clutch take-up judder phenomenon in rear wheel drive (RWD) automotive drivelines, fitted with manual transmissions and dry friction clutches. It discusses how and why the phenomenon occurs, the underlying system dynamics, the tribological contributions to the problem, the dominant influential factors, and the prospects for a design solution which would negate the need for costly palliation.
