Title: CLUTCH DEVICE, IN PARTICULAR FOR A MOTOR VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a clutch device (1) comprising a flywheel (2) intended for being attached to a crankshaft (8), and a hub (23) rotatably coupled to an input shaft (27) of a gearbox, a clutch mechanism (19) making it possible to rotatably couple or uncouple the flywheel (2) and the hub (23), damping means (31) comprising a mounting (32) provided with pendulous masses (36) and rotatably coupled to the output shaft (27) via complementary splines. The clutch device comprises a play-compensation member (57) and resilient return means (62) mounted between said pendulous damping means (31) and said play-compensation member (57) such as to bias the play-compensation member (57) into a locking position in which it pushes the splines of the pendulous damping means (31) against the splines of the shaft (27).
