    clutch maintenance

    Had a new clutch installed about 12k ago and its starting to feel much softer, maybe grabbing higher too. is this normal? I've never been a fan of vw audi clutches always been to soft and to high grabbing so i might be going crazy. (Spoiled by a friends e36 m3 clutch)

    Anyway i was wondering if theres any maintenance that should be done for the clutch or trans, ie fluid changes, or new pilot bearings? is there regular stuff that could have an effect on the feel and the grab of the clutch or does it just sit there till you need a new one?

    Re: clutch maintenance

    I think all A4 clutches engage fairly high due to them having a self adjusting hydraulic clutch.

    If it feels soft you could try bleeding it - have a look here for info on how to do it:
