I've never worked on an Audi a4, but I am very familiar with brakes and hydralic systems. You can have a "soft" pedal for a number of reasons. The first and foremost is air in the lines, but that's not the only reason, but the usual one and it could be yours. You failed to mention how many miles you had this vehicle and if when you changed your brakes you had the rotors turned. Depending the shape they are in can be the problem or maybe part of the problem. The reason I asked how many miles you had is do to the fact at times when people change their brake pads they look at the rotors and say to themselves. "Well they don't look that bad", and yes they might not look that bad, but that doesn't mean they are not worn down past the point where they should be replaced because they are too thin. When your rotor gets thin it causes the pedal to travel more then it would if the rotors where new and since the pistons in the caliper are traveling a greater distance it can make your pedal feel "soft".
It also could be coming from your rear brakes. I assume that they are shoes instead of pads, and when they get worn down they travel further. The distance is multiplied when the drum has been worn down smaller also.
Now another part of the equasion is you master cylinder, depending on the miles again it could be the problem or maybe part of it.
Another thing it could be is the metering valve.
With all of this said, I would adjust the rear brakes out as far as needed and then re-bleed your system. Start with the wheel that is the furtherst away from the master cylinder working to the shortest distance from the master cylinder.
Now get this. I had a friend who told me once (and I still don't know if I believe him) That after awhile your brake fluid can loose it compressionability, (thus causing a soft pedal) and it needs to be changed when it starts to look dark. He said the reason it gets dark is basically for 2 reasons. One, it gets too hot and burnt over the years of use and it get's dark fron the seals that are starting to deterioate. I don't know about that, but it kind of makes sense.

My clutch pedal stay close to the floor in my Acura CL. Doesnt return fully like it used too. Cant figure it out and I've replaced everythin


Bobbie, If your sure the system is bled properly,did you get the clutch fork back in correct position, was it the correct bearing etc., you may have to adjust the clutch pedal and / or if it has a mechanical return spring, change the spring, it could be weak.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides for clutch pedal adjustment., bleeding,etc.Good luck

I have a 2000 mazda 323 with a manual transmission. i have already change the clutch kit but the gear is still hard to shift


Check the hydraulic clutch operation. This is a clutch master cylinder with a reservoir on the firewall, and a clutch slave cylinder down on the bell housing of the transmission, with a steel tube running from the master to the slave cylinder. When clutch pedal is depressed, hydraulic fluid (brake fluid) is forced from the master to the slave. The slave cylinder should push out a little plunger that contacts the clutch fork lever-pushing it forward to engage the clutch.
Add brake fluid to the reservoir if needed. Watch the plunger on the slave cylinder: if it moves little, or not enough, try bleeding the slave from the bleeder valve. They are bled just like brakes. If bleeding doesn't help, your clutch master or the slave may need replacing. The master cylinder, like a brake master, has internal seals that hold hydraulic pressure, so force can be applied to the plunger on the slave cylinder.

No clutch pedal after fitting new clutch pugeout 407


you have an air bubble in the system.. keep bleeding it and it should return. if the clutch master cylinder is like a ford then you actually have to remove it to get the air out by holding the master at the right angel for the air to be completely removed....

Cant find the clutch reservoir on my audi a4 1.8 eastate r reg..


The Clutch Master Cylinder is located on the firewall inside the engine bay, and usually next to the brake master cylinder as the brake and clutch pedals are usually very close to one another. The Clutch Master Cylinder is responsible for transferring the clutch pedal pressure hydraulically to the slave cylinder to release the clutch. You can tell when your clutch master cylinder is dying or needs repair when you depress your clutch pedal and it slowly sinks to the floor and does not return. Since the entire system is a hydraulic one, the master cylinder also has a reservoir that holds the fluid used in the clutch hydraulic system. If you decide to change the clutch master cylinder it is a good idea to also get a clutch slave cylinder at the same time, as both units typically fail around the same time. When replacing your master or slave cylinder, its always a good idea to flush your entire system to prevent water buildup or air pockets from being present when you are driving. Also always keep an eye on the fluid in your reservoir, dirty fluid may mean that the internal seals are allowing dirt and contaminants into your master cylinder.

Clutch not primming in r32 skyline


You either have air in the system or a faulty master cylinder.

Check fluid is being delivered from the master cyl. by slackening off the hydraulic line connection at the master cylinder while depressing pedal.
Until fluid is able to be delivered from the master cyl. itself you have no hope of bleeding the rest of the system.

As with all hydraulic bleeding processes, only release the fluid line when the pedal is being pushed slowly down or held down against the return spring pressure of the clutch pressure plate - re-tighten it on the upward stroke of the pedal to stop it drawing air back into the system.

If you are confident that there is fluid delivery from the master cyl. move to the clutch slave cylinder.

Again only open the bleeder valve when the pedal is being pushed slowly down (i.e. the hydraulic system is pressurised).

(If you keep the master cylinder full of hydraulic fluid, sometimes gravity will cause the line to 'self bleed' if the bleed nipple is left slightly open for several minutes at the start of the bleed process).
When fluid appears, finish the slave cylinder air bleed in the normal way.

If you have the time to spare, I have often found that provided the master cylinder is kept full, leaving the system overnight will allow a lot of the air to leave the system (gravity helps).

No clutch resistance on audi a4


This sounds like a common Audi problem but its usually in early shape A3s and TTs. If you heard a snap, then possibly the pedal has broken where the clutch master cylinder connects to it. In this case you can just replace the pedal but it can be an early sign of a faulty master cylinder. If the pedal is ok, it maybe the master that has failed and needs replacing. Worse cases, the slave cylinder maybe faulty or even the release bearing could be sticking on the input shaft. Bleeding the brakes will not help, the clutch shares the same fluid and reservoir but is on a different hydraulic system. The clutch would need to be bled from the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder on top of the gearbox. This can be difficult without the car on the ramp, but is worth trying before replacing parts. What engine does it have?

Clutch


First, try bleeding the clutch system - it's possible that a pinhole leak somewhere has allowed air into the system. If that doesn't fix it, you're looking at a clutch slave or clutch master cylinder, as a failure of either one will cause the symptoms you have. The slave is less expensive and less involved to change, so I'd start there simply for those reasons. If a bleed doesn't fix it, and the slave cylinder isn't the cause, then you need a master cylinder most likely.
