Clutch pedal dropped


Recommended Posts

I love my Audi a3 it’s a 2012 2.0 Tdi sport .. the clutch pedal is on the floor when I first get in and I have to pump it to get it to come up … I’ve contacted garage and they say master cylinder … they also say £900 to repair … can anyone tell me if this sounds right as I know you have to take engine out to replace clutch, but don’t understand why so much to do cylinder

Hello Jody, 

I take it it’s your local garage who want £900 to replace the master cylinder -? 
I could be way out on this, but this symptom is often associated with the slave/release bearing assembly. 
I would think a second opinion would be worthwhile before committing to any repair.

Kind regards,

Thank you for your reply Gareth. 

Hi if you can pump the pedal up its the master cylinder around £160 from Audi, where the rest of the money comes from I can't imagine its only a three hour job, if I was you I would definitely get a few other quotes based on what is the fault, I do hate this when the garages get inventive with pricing.
