Thanks for the compliment, Jon! What can I say? I guess I'm just very passionate about the A5/S5, and I also really enjoy helping out others whenever I can... but only if they've attempted to perform a search first.you know I see you post a lot! And you are by far one of the most devoted and helpful people I've ever seen on a forum.
Glad to hear it all worked out for you, and thanks for sharingMy baby just came back from a 3 week vacation at the dealership. Long story short, Audi replaced the throwout bearing, clutch plate, and pressure plate. The technician said that the throwout bearing had collapsed, and pieces of it were in between the clutch and pressure plates, causing bad wear and heat marks. It's perfect now.
