It's a hydraulic system on the Audi. Using a master cylinder (nearer pedal and firewall) and a slave cylinder (at clutch release bearing itself, or on side of tranny. Owner's manual should give location for a reservoir to check. Similar but smaller than brake master cylinder reservoir if that helps. The system uses brake fluid, and you either have a leak, a lack, or a loss of this fluid, and/or pressure to the clutch. Sounds like you need qualified service, these systems need REAL diagnosis before you start buying parts. ALso can be hard to bleed completely free of air after parts are installed.

New clutch installed. No pedal, stays on floor unless I bring it back up with my hand. No resistance.


`Did it bleed, did fluid come out in a steady stream? Isn't there a spring to bring the pedal off the floor?
Check the linkage of the pedal to rod to the clutch master cylinder, make sure that is all together. Any chance the master has an internal leak and won't build hydraulic pressure down at the slave? If you get it bled, then watch the slave operation while someone works the clutch pedal. The piston on the slave should extend and push the clutch fork enough to disengage the clutch.

Clutch pedal sinks to floor


Unless you have bled the slave cylinder properly there will still be air in it. However I think the problem is in the clutch master cylinder ---piston rubbers leaking fluid back to reservoir. Replace the m/cyl with new item and bleed out correctly.

The hydraulic clutch works much like the brake system, there is a master cylinder with a piston and spring that should keep the pedal up.
You may have to take the clutch master cyl off and inspect the internal parts.

Clutch goes all the way down to the floor, unable ...


Does the clutch pedal offer any resistance? The clutch and brake system use the same reservoir, there is a hose coming out from the side of the reservoir that goes over to the clutch master cylinder. Sometimes the brake fluid level goes low as brake pads wear and lowers the fluid level too low to work the clutch. On the front side of the transmission, is a clutch slave cylinder, check it for leaks, if it leaks replace it. Hope this helps, let me know.
