    Intermittent clutch slip

    Hi All,
    2011 A4 Avant manual 6 speed 2.0 TDI 140, noticed when driving yesterday when accelerating in 6th from around 1600 rpm in top gear the clutch seems to slip for a couple of seconds, it doesn't happen all the time infact yesterday was the first time I ve noticed it tho I don't drive it as much as the wife who doesn't think it's happened when she's being driving
    Could this be a sticking pressure plate or perhaps an oil seal issue, no doubt it'll need to develop before a diagnosis can be made
    would you contact Audi now incase this is a warranty job
    thanks in advance Andrew

    How many miles has the car done ? .Sounds like the clutch to me, If it's a clutch or an oil seal the gearbox will need to come off and I would of thought a clutch wouldn't be covered under warranty especially if the car has some miles on it.

    Hi Karl, just turned 30k
    Seems fine 99% of the time under load etc never missed a beat, doesn't skip under harsh acceleration through the gears or 9 times outa 10 if you let it pull from low down in sixth.
    I thought I was imagining it at first, but twice yesterday it happened pulling from low revs on the motorway

    Thanks for that it's getting there.
    At only 30K there shouldn't obviously be an issue with the clutch. Doesn't have a tow bar does it ? .
    Just trying to think what the dealer will say if you turn up with a 30K car and say the clutch is slipping.
    Depending on what they find if they do take it apart if it's not an obvious manufacturing fault with the clutch or a parts failure then you may have to pay for some of the work.

    Clutch is definitely not covered under warranty.

    Hi guys,
    I maybe didn't make such a good job of explaining myself, I totally understand the clutch not being a warranty item as it's wear and tear, my question is Is the intermittent slip signs of maybe a sticky pressure plate or possibly an oil seal issue? 30k is nowhere near enough miles in a bog standard non modded car to wear a clutch out surely

    I have the exact same issue as you sometimes it slips and then the next day I can't make it slip at all even by dipping the clutch in a high gear :/ so I have booked in for a new clutch and flywheel so see if that sorts it lol mine has just gone 50k

    Quick update guys,
    I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place,at least that's how it feels, should Audi remove the box and find a fault to cause the intermittent slipping clutch then they'll repair under warranty, if it's wear and tear its £1497 and a few pence, so do you go with your gut instict and give Audi the car, take the risk of it coming back at £1497 odd or go to and independent for a third of that price only to discover you could of had it done for free under warranty?
    Should anyone have a crystal ball I can borrow pls feel free to holla

    Hi SI-W85
    I wondered that but I think Audi would knock that back as there's no way you could prove its the clutch plate etc from your car, strangely VW main dealer only want £874 to replace the clutch, so unless Audi are also changing the flywheel why over £600 difference for the same clutch
    I'm sure the answer is at the bottom of this whiskey bottle

    It will be for the flywheel too I would say, yes that may be a problem with proving it is from your car, I am going through a similar thing to you mine is booked in at another garage tommorow for clutch & flywheel £800 all in, I have been told I am allowed to take my car to another garage for the work doing as mine is a juddering flywheel & clutch slip. We will see what comes of it when I ring the Dealer to say its been done but I suspect nothing

    Audi are ringing back tomorrow to give me there best guess, after that it'll be decision time, I notice if your car is 3 years or over and 2.0 ltr or under Audi will fit a clutch for £749, mine will be 3 years old at the end of June, I wonder if she'll go till then lol

    If that's just a clutch then that is expensive, like I say mines clutch and flywheel and bearing for £800 all in. Mine started slipping 2 week ago and it isn't a daily driver but it is now on its last legs slipping really bad.

    Noticed this on Sunday for the 1st time,only happens once in a blue moon but the wife drives it daily so it needs sorted, it doesn't judder pulling away, only slips when you put your foot down in top gear. From 1600 revs,climbs to 2000 n slips for a couple of seconds then bites and returns to normal, seems to happen on,y when it's up to temp on a decent run

    I had to have my Clutch & Flywheel replaced as it just out of the blue went and started burning without no sign or slipping beforehand.
    I just went to give it a little blast and it just revved and didn't go anyway and the clutch were burning. 27000 miles not even 3 years old but i do suspect it is the remap hence i have put it back to stock.
    Audi wanted £2000 for it and they would of put £1000 towards it if it weren't remapped so i took it elsewhere and had it done for £800 instead and get 2 years warranty with it.

    Those things you come to expect when you've remapped, this is totally stock,tho I'm now wondering if it's worth upgrading the clutch while it's out, if I'm paying I may as well put in what I want.

    Spoken to an Audi specialist this morning, they have just done another A4 with the same fault, apparently there's an upgrade for the clutch master cylinder,tho Audi Newcastle say not, Audi Newcastle are however going to investigate the problem and tell me what is, FOC,wether its covered under warranty and if not, if not how much to rectify. So until I've an answer from Audi I'll just hold my breath and pray my gut instinct is right and there's an underlying problem
    Thanks for all your help
