I have98 A41.8t Aeb and I think the clutch went out... I was driving today and I started smelling a really bad burning smell that I have smelled before and then I noticed there was no pressure on my clutch and could barely move because lack of power... I pulled over and my engine was smoking from the trsnny and engine area on the right side snd there was some kind of red glowing almost melting my wiring harness, I couldn't drkbe anywhere and could only go into third but now after everything cooled down I could put it in any gesr and barely move at all now with pressure in my clutch... Is that a bad clutch or could it be something else?

Oh yeah, that sounds like a deep-fried clutch to me. It may have started as a bad master cylinder, hence the no pressure feeling. I would stop driving it until you get it checked out, otherwise it will turn into about 5 more things.
