Subject line says it all - well actually it doesn't [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsdown.gif[/img]
I've a 2003 S4 manual with 13k mi, and the [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif[/img] clutch failed on me. Driving quite sedately (due to snow) on a B road, changed from 3rd to 4th, only with some grating, then accelerated. No forward drive, but revcounter nearing red line. Turned down CD player [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] to hear the v8 rev without any forward motion. Noticed clutch pedal still down to the floor boards - tried to hook the pedal up. Clutch pedal has the resistance of a limp lettuce leaf - [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif[/img] it. A few blips of the throttle, up springs the clutch pedal and forward motion is resumed.
WTF was that all about, I thought [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]. Anyhow, carried on driving carefully for a few more miles, and the same thing happened again - only this time no gears will engage, no matter how much blipping and trying to match revs. Clutch pedal resting on carpet again. Hook toe under to lift pedal, but it just flops to floor again.
Calls Audi rescue, recovered to local Audi dealer, no Audi courtesy car, get some awful jap-crap rice-burner (so f*%king [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif[/img], the head lamps dim to a candle glow when ABS or TC kicks in) from National rent-a-car.
Following day, Audi dealer fones and tells me clutch has broken up, and shagged the flywheel too. Parts on back order. Still no Audi courtesy car 7 days on.
WTF do I do? Any advice please?
Thanks - Sean
