In my old car(a Nissan SE-R), some of the rivets that hold the clutch
together came loose.  If they vibrated into the correct position, they'd
prevent the clutch from being pushed down.  For awhile, this happened
infrequently but it got worse.  I suppose it's conceivable that a rivet
that got loose in a different position could cause your problem.

I thought the A4 had a hydraulic clutch, but if it's a cable then this
could be the cause.
