    I bought a clutch for Ł90 from GSF... fitting is the major chunk of cost... 4 or 5 hours at least I think...

    If you need a new dual mass flywheel then thats another Ł250 ish on top

    Oh well that sucks! At least you can fit yours, I wouldn't have a clue. Its in with my local garage at the moment, just waiting for a quote, what would be a good alternative place to have it done, swindon or south of.

    its a good 8 hrs work to access the slave cylinder alone, and while you ar there you just as well change the flywheel and clutch

    Ooh first post - My slave cylinder went and it was about Ł250 to get fixed by Audi. I was only on about 80k at the time and was miles from home. Had to get the AA to relay me home!

    Wait, so if its just the slave and I can get that done for Ł250 do i have to spend 8 hours putting a new clutch in? Did Audi just replace the slave??

    What engine/car do you have?

    The S3/A3 TQS (quattro)needs to have the box removed to fit the slave cylinder

    The clutch and flywheel take no more that an addiional half hour-hour tops when the box is off to do the slave. If you can get it done for Ł250, that's quite cheap, but get the clutch checked at the same time to save labour changes

    At the time I had a 2000 X reg Audi S3 (APY). I have since sold the car so I cannot check the details, but from what I remember they said the seals had gone in the slave cyl. No hydraulic pressure means clutch didn't engage. At the time my Audi garage charged about Ł90 per hr.

    This is what I thought, surely if they have to have the box off anyway to get to the slave cylinder it will cost more than Ł250?
