Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.

When the pedal sticks to the floor, does it come back up on its own or do you have to lift it manually?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

It usually happens when I park the car then I have to lift it with the toe of my foot. It does sometimes happen when driving at slower speeds,.


but then it only partially stays in and again I have to lift it with my foot.

From what you are describing the problem is the clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder is bleeding down and not holding the pressure like it should in turn resulting in the issue. The master cylinder and slave cylinder will need to be checked and likely replaced, this will not require the gearbox to be removed.

Can you give me a rough idea of how much this will cost please. Also should it be done at an Audi garage or would a good local garage be ok to do the work.

A local garage could do this job for you with no problem and the labor will run about 2 hours at the shops labor rate, the part will run about 125. Thank you.

I did ask if it was serious. Should I have it repaired asap? Liz Aldridge
Expert:  mike_a_mechanic replied 3 years ago.
Yes this repair should be made as soon as you can so that damage to the clutch or gearbox does not occur. Thank you.
