    My clutch seems to be bitting quite low on the pedal, I am not getting any other symptoms.
    Are the clutch's adjustable on the A3 TDI Quatrro 52 plate
    Does it sound like the clutch is on its way out? and if so how much for a garage to replace roughly?

    Its more likely a failing master or slave cylinder. Sadly they have no adjustability.


    Try bleeding the clutch and see what happens then

    I think a replacement clutch is an engine out job on the S3 - so pretty expensive if that's the case!

    Yep TQS and any other quattro is engine out for slave cylinder hence its worth a bleed to see if that solves it for now
