Went for a hard launch and the clutch just slipped

Now it slips under acceleration worse in higher gears.

Initially it's hard then it goes soft like there's nothing there then the last bit is hard.

Bites right on the top.

Any thoughts

My daily slag did 165k on OEM, but I swopped the Noggy at 100k during a clutch replacement

165 on a four pot diesel maybe!  But the V8 manual Audis eat clutches!  My S4 had its clutch and flywheel changed at 63k iirc, and I've seen ones done sooner!

But no clutch at the same time? That's madness!

Not sure on brand didn't state any makes

Will see what it's like tomorrow maybe and have a look around see if I can see anything which I doubt, thought the B5s engine bay was tight haha

Tried searching but found sod all really as these didnt catch on as well as the B5 they don't have much of a following.

Might be a jack it up on stands in the garage and pull the box hear and there when I get time

LOL why?       Joking aside,  it does sound like it's fried,  no adjustment either so there's nowt you can do other than renew it.

I think it may be a pressure plate problem due to the change in pedal feel feels like it's not being clamped enough

The pedal was smooth and now it's hard say 1st 1/4 then 3/4 of nothing the last 1/4 is tough and spongy

Pedal is back to normal today but the clutch is biting right near the top and as soon as the clutch gets warm it slips unet heavy load.

Next question

What clutch?

Not going SMF as they chatter like hell did it on my Golf Mk2 20vt.

Sachs Clutch?
Does the RS B7 clutch fit?

Not much info out there

If it's a b7 the rs4 clutch will go straight on. If it's a b6 then you'll have to change to b7 flywheel.
