We've had four clutches in our Audi A4 - is there any way to rectify this constant issue?
I have read with interest what to watch out for on the car reviews for the Audi A4 B8. We have had four clutches and DMF because of the juddering issue. One at 20,000 when my father owned the car, one at 35,000, one at 35,500 (replaced at the cost of Audi) and now Audi are again advising the gearbox is removed and the clutch checked. I know full well they are going to come back with it requiring a new clutch. From the car reviews, I can see that other people have suffered the same problem and was wondering if anyone ever got to the bottom of this issue before we look at selling the car.
Our records show a number of examples of this problem, but eventually this was reported. "8-11-2015: Reader reported clutch and DMF failure on 2009 A4 B8 2.0 TDI in 2012 at 26,000 miles, then again in late 2015 at 58,000 miles. Independent garage fitting clutch discovered that a modified clutch release fork was required in accordance with an undated Audi TSB." See: www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/audi/a4-b8-2008/?sec.../
