View Full Version : B5 clutch 2.8

02-24-2014, 05:36 PM
The clutch on my B5 2.8 is engaging very high(pedal Height) but it feels
like it is a long way from giving out. Is this normal for a worn out clutch or
is something else possibly wrong...slave cylinder, adjustment or ??? Also, how much
should it cost to have the clutch replaced?? I am also considering just replacing the clutch
myself...anyone done this service on their A4, and have advice on this job?

Is there any noticeable slipping of the clutch or just a high engagement point?

Edit: How many miles are on the clutch? A high(er) engagement point does not always mean your clutch is bad.

I wouldn't replace it unless it starts slipping. The engagement point on these cars is high. That's just the way it is. There is no adjustment that I know of.

B5's have a notouriously high engagement point. That alone doesn't mean your clutch is hooped.

Very normal for the OEM stock clutch since it doesn't take much movement of the pedal/slave to take all of the pressure off the disk.
