    Hi Everyone.
    Clutch started slipping on my A4 over the weekend.

    Its a 1.9TDi running at around 165hp currently with 112k on the clock.

    My question is, should i fit an uprated replacement clutch and if so what should I go for?

    Secondly, is it usual practice to replace the flywheel at the same time on these?

    Thanks!

    6 speed clutch is pretty strong and is bigger like 5speed clutch(240mm vs 288mm),can hold more than 400nm torque safe;so stick with oem :icon_thumright:
