Re: Ur-Quattro Big Problem

 # I thought the clutch/firewall tear thing was limited to the

... I'll bet that's the main reason they changed the way the MC is 
mounted from the firewall to that cast part that holds the pedals.  
I guess I'd better check my urQ as well ... I do hear a noise from 
the clutch pedal area from time to time myself.  I'm thinking that 
if I install a plate with 3 holes drilled in it and install it on 
the interior side that it should distribute the load as long as I 
don't have a massive crack ...

My thoughts on why the clutch gets more difficult to actuate over 
time is the plastic throw-out bearing sleeve that is used on many 
of the older cars.  I always replace this with a metal one whenever 
I'm in there ...
