    Clutch slipping advice

    Hi all .

    Recently my Audi A3 clutch has started to slip in high gear and the the biteing point has come very high. I just was wondering would i need to change the flywheel aswell as it is a dual mass . I have had no problems with the flywheel juddering or making any noise and the clutch and flywheel where changed in jan 2012 but i think they where second hand. Can i get away with just changing the clutch or will i have to go all in .

    Thanks all

    You've done half a job before and it bit you in the ass, do a proper job this time. If you'd had new parts last time you wouldn't need to be doing it again.

    Change the release bearing as well - only £40 or there abouts!
