    Question Clutch pad wear indicator

    Are there any plugs/holes so that it possible to see how much clutch pad is left over?

    I seem to be suffering from clutch slippage during 5th and 6th gear on a standard Audi S3 52 plate thats done 55K miles. Im quite certain that I havent totally burnt out my clutch, I only noticed the symptoms a week after having my front left wheel gaiter replaced. I done the usual test of pulling the hand brake up, and trying to pull off in 1st gear and there doesnt seem to be any slippage Im quite curious to know what the exact problem is.

    The garage that fixed my gaiter, I don’t know whether they forgot to connect something back up? As something like doesn’t happen overnight, it’s more of a gradual affect. One of the other possibilities I thought about was the weather, as it has been very cold recently – but I’m quite certain the clutch system is all seal. Someone pointed out on this forum that it could be the waste gate, I have an aftermarket one which I service quite often and this is not the problem.
