    Just a quick question, my clutch pedal is down and theres no leaks under the car and the actual pedal seems fine. Theres this white clip that i found loose when i removed the dash part underneath, im guessing it has something to do with why the clutch wont work.

    heres a pic, its split on 1 side, but you cant see it in the pic, sorry about the quality its an iphone lol.

    Also i think this appeared as i was removing the lower dash, but not sure if its from the dash or clutch, sorry it was dark and cold couldnt see much.

    Got a new pedal, white clip and black plastic part for 25 quid fromn Audi dealer, how long would it take to fit or how much would a garage charge to fit these parts?

    Thanks

    well its a **** to do & requires patients & time, its the fulcrum part to get back in place thats the shitter, namely the spring but cable ties might help there & a dry day, lol, mine was in pissing rain not nice & was extremely pissssed of with audi not helping me at all, my local stealer that is in how to fit when I was 5-6 hours from home, all they needed to do was get a technician on phone & give me some quick advice not a step by step guide, wankkkkeeerrrrrrrrssss thats why I never buy cars from stealers, actually one reason anyway.

    if its not that, it could be the clutch master cylinder or slave.

    My master cylinder went (the one on the pedal) nothing leaked but pedal went to the floor. there was still a bit of pressure but not much.

    If its the slave, thats a hell of a job, the slave cylinder is near the gear box.

    Praying its not a master cylinder!! anyhow its booked in at my local audi vw specialist, having to use the RAC to tow it there. They reckon about 90 quid labour, sound about right? I normally do most of the work myself but with teh weather and the fact its dark by thetime i finish work, i really cant be arsed! lol

    ill keep you posted.
