I've had my new Audi A3 1.6 FSI for about four weeks now. Right from the
start, the clutch pedal would vibrate pretty heavily when trying to get the
"bite" on it. This would only generally happen when the car has got a
little bit warmer, nearer the 90 degree point on the temp gauge.
Basically, then the car is cold, bringing the clutch up to the "bite" (am I
using the right phrase here?) would be normal, with no major vibrations of
any sort. The more the journey lasted, the more the clutch would vibrate in
this "bite" position, to the point where the engine was physically making
this knocking noise in tandem with the vibrations from the clutch.
The weird thing is that it's intermittent. It would happen for a few
seconds then stop and normal "service" would resume. Then a few seconds
later, it would come back again. This is most notable when I'm in traffic,
where there's a lot of stopping and moving.
The car seems to drive fine otherwise, with no issues on gear changing and
no weird noises coming from the engine.
As you can tell, I'm no expert when it comes to cars, so any help or insight
on this would be greatly appreciated.
