Clutch judder from cold in damp weather
We've had a clutch judder problem for a while now but it had been intermittent and the dealer was unable to fault the clutch when the car was serviced.
Recently the problem is happening more frequently and it appears to be related to how damp the weather is.
The problem manifests itself when the car is cold and only when pulling away in 1st. It can do it for few start and then is fine for the rest of the day. My initial thoughts were an oil leak onto the plates which would burn off as the clutch was used and the car warmed but I don't see what difference the weather makes.
Any ideas? The car is a FWD TDI 130 and has only done about 19700 miles. I'm pretty gentle with the clutch when pulling away and also generally match the revs when changing down.
I'll be booking it in again soon as that and a few rattles are getting pretty annoying.
I have the same issue - also unresolved
My 12 month old A4 Diesel has exactly the same issue. When damp and cold it judders terribly in first gear and will stall if I don't ride the clutch. Once the engine is warm the issue disapears. It is however intermittant and when I had it in to Audi they could not replicate the fault. It is actually quite dangerous when needing to pull away quickly in peak traffic.
I have now booked it in for a week to see if they can replicate the fault. I will let you know if I get anywhere.
Garage couldn't replicate but have applied an update
My car was in four days and their "master technician" couldn't replicate the fault. They have however applied an update to the engine managment control which was advised by Audi to fix this particular fault. I've driven it for the last couple of days whilst damp and cold; touch wood there has been no repeat so far.
I did also have to replace a litre of oil the week before, they did not see any connection between the two but I was surprised as I have only had the car a couple of months.
It will take anpther week before I am confident that the issue is sorted. In any case I will write another post and let people know.
