Here lies...

My A4 Avant’s clutch. After more than 100K San Francisco bay area miles, its health had been declining after a recent sibling car borrowing incident.

Actually unclear whether it was the clutch itself that gave up the ghost. It didn’t slip, I just shifted out of second and was never able to go back into any other gear. Engine off I can move the shifter around, but with it on it won’t go into anything, as if the clutch pedal (which is now completely limp except the last 1/2 inch of travel at the bottom) doesn’t actually disengage the clutch.

Waiting for a tow to have the $1,200 at least job done 😪
