    To add to my post 20th aug 2008 golf mk4 slipping clutch, well i have been checking out dual mass clutch on google, there are some very good sites, it would seem that they are designed to slip to protect the clutch/springs etc against sudden amounts of torque, this is why mine sometimes slips under hard acceleration if you catch it just right around 1800/2000 revs, check video on youtube 3d veiw of a dual mass clutch to show you how it works, hope this helps anybody with same problem,

    cheers pdj4.

check /replace clutch cable or replace master cylinder. If the clutch has not been replaced it may need a clutch kit as the indications are that the pressure plate is weak ( worn clutch plate or from overheated clutch)

2000 pontiac sunfire 5 speed manual transmission with 40,000 miles on the clutch started slipping what's going on with it


a clutch can wear out in a couple hundred miles if not driven properly or abused-at 40,000 miles it is highly possible that the clutch disk is worn to the point that it needs to be replaced. You might be able to get away with driving it but avoid driving it is such a way that it slips-if you can hear the engine running 'ahead' of the car (revving faster than you are moving) get off the gas-especially in higher gears. If you do this until you can get the clutch replaced, you should be able to nurse it along for months.

Clutch on my golf gti turbo


it is the clutch.
theres nothing else you can do but replace the clutch.
as to the kind of clutch i would use original equipment to replace with.
be very carefull with after market stores.
there are better parts you can use but you must look into other clutchs that have been used and decide for yourself which one is best for you.

just a thinker for you.
if it is a 2000 car and this is its first clutch original equip allready proves to go this long.
dont get a kit that will need to be done again in 10000 miles cause a racer says its an awesome kit.

labor on that is expected to be in the 290 350 range.
parts on this is about 360 490

pilot bearing
throwout bearing
clutch plate
clutch disc
have all four parts replaced
no questions asked if they cant do the job right then find someone else.
dont short yourself on this job cause you will kick yourself later.

Golf 1 clutch keeps slipping


Yes, replace it. It wears out just like brake rotors do. If it is too thin the clutch will slip.

Shift problem on mk4 vw golf with manual trans


Does it happen after you drive it? make sure the clutch assy. is not getting hot. If it is make sure to remove you foot form the clutch pedal just a little pressure can make the clutch slip. And heat will not let the clutch assy. to work right. If it is not getting hot check the shifting cables and the bushings on the transmission

Clutch slipping m4 golf


Best check for this is to get the car around 30mph, put it in top gear, and floor the gas. If the clutch is going to slip, this is when it'll happen. If it slips, you'll need to replace it. If it doesn't, there's likely no issue with the clutch and you'll have to look elsewhere for the problems you're seeing.
