Hi Europa, it is in the dealership and they have found the problem and have the part on order. I will find out what it is and post some info.I absolutely have this issue. The pedal "grinds" and sticks. I haven't yet figured out the fix.
Will do. These guys have a different accent to me, so that could explain the mixup!Sounds like a slave cylinder, which isn't surprising, and could it read: "release bearing?" If so, that is a pain - the release bearing involves a lot of labour to remove and reinstall. Thanks, and keep us posted.
+1. I get the same thing. I think its normal tho.Has anyone noticed a grinding feeling when using the clutch? Sometimes I get it, sometimes I do not.
Interesting. How is it running now and has it made any difference to before when it was working fine?They changed the throwout bearing on mine, took 3 weeks....(2 weeks for the part to come)...According to the dealer, a lot of S5 have this issue.
Well, I could not shift anymore, so yes it definitely feel better now. However, the gearing still feel a bit notchy, but clutch works like a charm!Interesting. How is it running now and has it made any difference to before when it was working fine?
Thanks.Update from AudiWorld: it is the throwout bearing that is causing the clutch vibration issues. http://forums.audiworld.com/a5/msgs/31874.phtml
