4000 Quattro Argh!
Ok, I'll admit it, this problem was probably completely my fault...
Everytime I shift, when I release the pedal, I would let it click up until
it rested at the height of it's swing, somewhere about 30 degrees above
where it normally would rest. It was "playing with the clutch pedal" I
guess that turned into how I shifted.
Well, I'm driving to class today, and the pedal starts clicking and
wouldn't go above where it normally should rest. 30 miles later, it
wouldn't even come up to there....20 minutes later, it was barely
disengaging the clutch before I hit second gear...
I BARELY made it through the gates at Harvard when it seemed to sigh and
give out....So I pulled into the nearest parking space (YES, I did "park
the car in Harvard Yard") and saw that the clutch pedal had become
disassociated from the clutch slave cylinder? that it pushed on to engage
the clutch. I'm assuming that a new slave will do it, because I don't know
if I trust the pedal to be rewelded or something....
I know this is a common problem, but has anyone ever seen that little
bracket on the back snap like that?
