    When my car is cold the clutch pedal has alot of play in it and, it refuses to go into reverse. Until recently it was still drivable....after a couple of mins, alot of pedal pumping and some force it would go into gear and after a while of driving the clutch pedal would come back to normal. But yesterday i could not get it into reverse at all. Is this a clutch problem? My S3 had done 31000 miles when i purchased it 2 years ago and has now done about 41000 miles. Anyone experienced the same problem? Any help would be great!

    Cheers

    Yeah, sounds like a clutch problem to me matey I'm afraid.... Almost like the friction plate isn't working until it expands with heat.

    May be worth bleeding it before going for that though.
