Clutch slave cylinder or master cylinder ?
Hi people ,
I own a 2003 1.8t quattro. The car has recently developed a problem with the clutch. I have a had a read through some of the threads and it sounds like it is quite a commom problem.
The clutch sometimes seems to loose pressure meaning that I need to push the pedal all the way to the floor and it still seems as if it is not fully engaged as it is difficult to select gears. The pedal will also not return properly from time to time and I need to pull it back up with my foot.
If i pump the pedal a few times it builds the pressure back up and it is ok for a while.
I have had a look under the car and it seems pretty dry ie no fluid leaking out from the gearbox and the fluid in the reservoir is at the correct level.
Do you think it is the slave cylinder ? . . . .
I dont fancy taking the gearbox off !!
