    When I bought my A6 (off a mate) recently, it had just had a new clutch and dual mass flywheel fitted. I've noticed recently that there is a fair amount of 'juddering' at low speed when lifting the clutch. It only happens in 1st gear and then is normal once the car is going.

    Has anyone else ever come across this, could it be a problem with the new clutch? I can go back to the guy that fitted it, but before I do that I just wondered if it was a common problem.

    thanks guys

    very handy thanks, sounds like it's pretty normal on cold or damp mornings (so that's most of the year then!). Not sure whether I'll get it looked at or not, it's a new clutch but I guess without this new part that doesn't let moisture build up as much. I would probably have to incur more expense which I don't really want to do!

    Thanks for the link though.

    Yeah possibly although my car is 10 years old now so I'd expect some little foibles and stuff. Certainly not on newer cars tho
