No, it will not wear the clutch faster That is a VERY unsafe driving practice. By putting the car's transmission into neutral, while going down a hill, you are now relying 100 percent on the car's brakes to slow and stop the car. This is very dangerous. The much safer way to do this is..........downshift to second gear and use the engine and the gears to slow down, while "covering the brake pedal" with your left foot, in case you need to stop rapidly. With a manual transmission, when you put it in neutral, you have dis-connected the engine from the drive wheels. The clutch pedal and the clutch plate are the parts that allow you to change gears without grinding them. Excessive clutch plate wear comes from "riding the clutch pedal" with your left foot, while driving along. Doing that partially engages the clutch plate, and makes it wear out rapidly. You should take your left foot completely OFF the clutch pedal when NOT shifting gears, and place it on the floor, away from the pedal.
