    Clutch problem

    hi
    I bought my first ever Audi last week (A3 sport 2.0 FSI, 2004 plate). Im wondering if there's a problem with the Clutch.
    Basically moving off from a standing start the biting point is literally an inch from the carpet floor. is that correct?
    when actually driving the clutch is spot on and gear changes a dream. it's just pulling off


    please advise.

    im sure audi's have hydraulic clutch's so maybe it needs bleeding but could be a worn clutch too get it checked out by a garage doesnt have to be audi either so will save you a few 's

    yeh ive google'd and i too found that they are hydraulic and can't be adjusted?

    i do have a 30 day warranty, but the garage is 30 miles away, and no doubt the warranty will be one of those not worth the paper it's on

    is the clutch slipping?
    drive at 30mph and put it into 5 and floor it, if it slips then you know it needs replacing.

    Normally a worn clutch means the pedal comes up higher. I would be thinking clutch master/slave cylinder. if you are lucky it might just want bleeding.

    i dont reckon it's slipping but i shall try the 30mph/5th gear tomorrow

    master / slave sounds rather expensive.....?

    update:
    clutch not slipping

    Ive rang Audi, he said same as above, if clutch was on way out the biting point would be near the brake pedal

    they are gonna have a look and drive Thursday
