Question about 2003 Audi TT

1 Answer

Audi tt 2003 1.8T Brake warning light beeps and comes on when I go around a corner. Clutch pedal occasionally goes to floor when cold and does not want to return. Both these problems have happened at the same time so I guess they may be related. Does the brake and clutch system share the same fluid reservoir? and if so waht oil should I use to get it in to repair shop? Thankyou

Hi, i'm pretty sure that you do have a combo brake/clutch system on the same reservoir. sounds like the brake fluid is low, when you take turns and the brake light goes on, that usually means low fluid sloshing away from internal reservoir sensor. audi and vw take DOT 4 brake fluid only, not DOT 3. You should fill to max level on the brake reservoir(located in front of the drivers seat/steering wheel in the engine compartment) and yes, take it to a professional shop, there maybe other problems in the brake/clutch system in need of inspection. hope i could help.

Clutch will not engage on my Audi TT. There is no resistance and pedal stays at floor when depressed. Anyone know what could cause this? All the linkage I can see inside the car looks intact.

either the clutch cable has broke or the plastic bearing housing the operating arm has failed ,best advice here is to seek the services of a local mechanic to diagnose the fault for you

My clutch pedal goes to the floor and will not pop back up. And I can't find the reservoir to check the fluid

  • The clutch sticking is going to be a slave cylinder or the clutch master cylinder.
  • The clutch master cylinder will be clear in the back under the hood by the firewall. It looks just like the brake master cylinder and is not far from it either.
  • After you add fluid and fix the problem make sure to bleed the clutch lines just like you would brakes. The bleeder valve is located by the slave cylinder. (see picture)


  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Break lights stay on after car is shutoff.i took off the battery cable so the battery would not go dead and then put it back on .the lights had stad off for a little bit **** come back tt 04

I would suspect a faulty brake switch which is activated by the pedal, inspect to see if it has dislodged from its correct position, in the mean time, instead of toying with the battery, you can simply unplug the switch or remove the fuse untill it is fixed. Good luck
