I just bought a pre-owned 2002 Audi TT Roadster (approx. 4 weeks ago), and ran into some mechanical problems that were fixed. I had to have the the timing belt + water pump/rotors, etc, catalytic convertor and spark plugs replaced.
Only just recently, I've noticed that the clutch is making a strange noise when I press it down when shifting gears. It sounds like the pistons are going slower than the gear shift (if that makes sense). The gears are still shifting, but it's just making a strange noise. Is it just low on clutch fluid? Or is it something more serious?
It's a 5 speed with a turbo (if that makes any difference)

I hope its your release bearing, but I had this same issue with my Audi and it turned out to be I need a new transmission, the gears are not catching it sounds like. your synchros may also be off. Does it do this in every gear, and once it does move, does the clutch slip?
Dear Avid Book Reader.......Some of your local auto parts stores might have these on the back shelf hidden from outta sight and mind. My best bet would be to make a couple of cals to parts stores in your area and see who is carrying them....if ya have already done that....then make the dreaded phone call to the audi dealer and have them ship that little bible of gears out to your humble abode.....thanks for readin and I HOPE I HELPED!!!!!
Jack it up and then put jack stands under the frame. You really need to purchase a good floor jack and 2 jack stands if you wish to change your own oil. This will allow you easy access to the underside. There is only one way to actually change the oil and filter.
Sounds like you have an alternator problem. The alternator may have gone bad due to non use. Some parts inside may have rusted out and got damaged. Better bring your car to your local mechanic and have the alternator checked.
