amateurs can use almost an infinite amount of time on that job... I have
heard mechanics brag of swapping clutches in 3-4 hours, though.

The tranny input seal is easy so it shuld be done. A little more work
gets you to the rear main seal. These are both cheap parts that require
tranny removal to replace.

Considering how rugged Audi clutches seem to be, I would just plan on
taking a look at it to make sure it is still good, that it has not
suffered due to your failing slave.
The clutch job should have included a new slave cylinder, of course...
