#1.  Team Doorhandle strikes again!!!  I believe you have to order the entire handle latch assembly and replace it.  Some random piece of plastic has broken, iirc.  Mine does the same thing; I am just not wanting to tear into the door yet.

#2. Probably need to adjust the switch that recognizes that the clutch is actually engaged.

1.  The driver?s door handle on the inside has come loose to the point that
it now splays out about a quarter-inch at rest.  So far, the door still
opens normally and it doesn?t seem to be ready to fall off, but I?m
wondering if there?s something I can/should tighten or whether there?s a
piece broken inside (a spring perhaps)?


2.  When I push the clutch in to start the car, sometimes the starter won?t
engage (because of the safety) and I have to ?stand? on the clutch pedal
before it goes.  As this is getting progressively worse, I was wondering if
there?s something I can adjust myself or whether it?s a job for trained Audi
mechanics only.  (I?m not much of a ?wrench? but expect this safety is
implemented mechanically.)
