    Either you can't change gears properly or the clutch pedal switch is knackered (less likely :moa:).

    The part is around £8 from Audi and doesn't take too long to change over, but it can be fiddly. It's a common problem on the 1.8T engines.

    I think this is false, i thought they all had the clutch switch/sensor.

    As iirc if you press the clutch the sensor will drop the revs?
