Type-44: HELP! Seeking good Audi mechanic in NYC/NJ Metro Area.

My 89200TQ was doing the same thing .  The peddle was pulsating until just
to the bearing finally letting go.  I then was experiencing clutch slipping
and bucking.
It turned out that my throw out bearing ate it.  By the time I pulled the
clutch there was
not much left of the bearing.  The pressure plate and disk had allot of miles
left on them
except for the fingers on the pressure plate.  It took a hit from the bearing
so I had to
replace everything.

Hope this helps
