    S3 CLUTCH CABLE

    Has the clutch cable got any form of adjustment? Or is it self adjusting I'm guessing it is??.
    After driving an 07 A4 today my clutch feels **** compared with that (obviously) but I had thought it for a while!

    Got no slip or funny noises. Anywhere I can put a bit of lube on??
    (Nice tight hole LOL)

    the S3 has a hydraulic clutch dint think you can adjust it as such you can bleed it though or renew the fluid may help?

    Wouldn't say heavy or light but compared with other cars I suppose heavy. It bites after a fair bit of travel
    Nothin said at service last week though.

    Maybe I'll just go and get a new RS4 Avant that should fix it!!

    S3 has a heavy clutch as standard. Bit painful driving in traffic for hours n hours. If it bites high up it might be on its way out but dont worry too much unless its starting to slip.

    As others have said its a hydraulic clutch but i think judging from a friends escort that has been heavily modified a sports clutch has a smaller biting point might wanna try that?

    I recently fitted a sprung pressure plate and single mass flywheel.

    The difference is amazing, the clutch is SO much lighter!
