    Angry F****ng Stuck - Clutch Pedal Snapped.

    Cant believe it, on my way to work this morning, was at a roundabout just pulling out when snap, crackle and pop.
    The clutch pedal went straight to the floor and that was it.
    Guessing this is what afew peoples encountered, the clutch pedal snapping.
    Great yet another expense.

    I feel sorry for you mate...Audi should really pay for this stupid fault. It's a lottery whether it happens or not...Same with the VW Lupo...Clutch boxes from hell...

    Can you fix it yourself?

    If its just the pedal thats gone with that welded square plate that snaps then you can fix yourself, patients needed to get the poxy spring on place but can be done, mine snapped 3-400 miles away from home, pissing rain & nowhere near dealer, luckily one of our offices at the time was round corner & they went & got me spare pedal, so fitted in rain & arms were bruised/cut to pieces as doing on side of road with sod all proper tools, but did it though, yeah baby bring it on.

    Happened to me.... but you can still drive it if you know what your doing, you need to start the car in first gear with a little gas and the syncho's will let you change gear without using the clutch.... to gear down you need to blip the engine on the throttle a bit and you need to time the traffic lights... worked for me to at least get the car home before i fixed it....

    Thanks for the replys guys.
    The AA guy did a temporay fix as they now carry a manual on this as its so common.
    The car was booked in for monday but i ended up getting that fed with driving with my knee it my chest i did it myself and fixed it, was aright cow of a job, fixed my gear crunch though haha, had some sparco pedals fitted and they were fouling the floor and stopping the clutch fully depressing.
    All in all agood day ish haha.

    How do Audi get away with not paying for this or replacing the part on a recall? I'm surprised it hasn't ended up causing a serious accident, especially for people less familiar with cars who might get alarmed\disorientated when suddenly "bang" the clutch pedal disappears at high speed.
