Ive been a long time lurker and finally decided to register. This site has been great and ive learned a ton and will continue to learn. I have a dolphin gray 04 A4 quattro 6sp. love the car (except for the power). All stock besides magnaflow exhaust. Right now, its all about maintenance for me. This leads me to a question regarding my clutch. i cant quite figure out what it may be.
anyway... In the morning (and evening after work) when i go out and leave to go to/from work, as i let my clutch out to take off there is a little click. Its very close to the top of letting the clutch out. Nothing loud or obnoxious. a small click that i can hear and feel in the clutch. shifting up/down in any other gear is fine. only taking off in first. Concerned it may become something bigger (and more expensive) i had my shop check it out. They checked everything over and found nothing. everything was tight. Their only guess was possibly a sticking ebrake caliper.
this made sense to me because i use the ebrake all the time. so to test this theory ive been parking it in gear instead of using the ebrake. and i found it doesnt change anything. still that click. Would there be anything in the clutch when it releases that would produce this click? any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks
