    Ok guys, looking for your views on what this issue might be.
    I have a 3.2 FSI Quattro Convertible.

    Driving along a dual carriage way (accelerating :sly: ). Changed from 2nd to 3rd. But during that change something happened and I couldn't engage 3rd gear. The clutch pedal immediately felt different. Ie spongy and as if it wasn't working.
    I managed to coast the car off the carriage way and into a side road.

    The car is with a garage and I'm waiting on the news but thought I would feel out and see if anyone else had a similar experience.

    I've had no clutch slipping or issues with gear changes beforehand.

    Any idea......

    Sorry my friend, could you elaborate?
    My mechanical knowledge is pitiful! haha


    OK, I just did some google searches. I see what you mean.
    Sounds like it could be a possibility. And I like to think cheaper than the actual clutch!!!
