The slave cylinder in my S1 with a 6spd Audi set up is on the way out. Does anyone know if its possible to drop the box alone? Or is it a box and engine out job? Assume best to take clam off regardless. Cheers.

Yeah, you're taking the whole lot out I'm afraid. First question, what makes you think the slave cylinder is on its way out?

Cheers Sean, well I'm going to try the master first.
Basically clutch sometimes doesn't disengage properly and other times the bite point fails to be a 'point' and is more of a progression along the whole pedal stroke.
Bled the system and got some black (hose or seal breakdown?) particles out.

Hoping its the master then!!!!

This is one of the last issues to sort for now, I fixed so many things in the thousand miles I've had it, but it goes so much better now - love it :-)
Then over winter, up to ADE tuning for a new ecu and power hike.....

Cheers

If your car is running the original Audi plastic connector with restriction where the pipe joins the box try replacing that with one of the alloy aftermarket versions too.

Oh OK, didn't realise there was an aftermarket version of that. Thanks!

Had similar on my S2, it was caused by the centre plate sticking on the gearbox input shaft. very odd feeling indeed when you put your foot on the clutch the car keeps going and you can't pull it out of gear, pump the pedal once or twice and it is ok again. Mine mostly did it when cold.

Changed the master, much better but still a bit sticky. Just hope now it's getting used regularly used it might settle down.
