    sounds like it.... to get to the clutch release bearings you need to get to the clutch, so not a cheap job. Chances are in most cases is your release barings are going your clutch is probably on its way out (not in all cases or not in the very early days of your release baring becomming noisey though), it is something thats done though when your clutch is changed.

    Whats your current milage and when was the clutch last changed?

    as with swarcup as i said, just because it has become noisy doesnt mean you need to replace it immediately or anything it just shows that it is approaching its "used" time. The main question is how is the biting point on your clutch? Is it very high? if not I wouldnt worry about it. For some reason 85k stands out as a rough clutch change time- but ultimatley its when your clutch starts to slip.

    As for cost see here Affordable servicing < Servicing with Audi < Owners area < Audi UK

    I wouldnt worry about it mate.
