20.000 miles on a new clutch and flywheel .

Hw many miles do you have on this Audi .

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
19000 miles

And now you need a new clutch ?

slipping ?

Very rare the only way we see this is if the drive in question is driving with his/her foot resting on the clutch pedal .

Alway slipping the clutch on starts , hilly area and rides the clutch all this will cause a clutch to fail in under 20.000 .

Okay lot of issue with the diesel model with the duel plate clutch having big issue

but not with the engine you have ,

But in both cases Audi will not cover this on the warranty as of today ,but they do know there is a big complaint

about the diesel model having this same problem as your ,clutch failure under 20.000 miles .

You could open a complaint with Audi and see if this will change at all.

Sorry for the bad news .
