S-tronic clutch slipping in only 4th?? Any ideas?


Registered User

I've had my 1.8tfsi Stronic for about a year now and it has recently started clutch slipping, however it only seems to do it in 4th gear. (It's the 7 speed box if that makes any difference). I dont have to be driving it hard either in fact if i use the tiptronic to change up after its slipped in 4th and boot it all the way through 5th, 6th and into 7th its fine.

Its just confusing me as to why its only doing it in the one gear, whilst im on topic, any ideas how much a new clutch would be if one was needed?
