clutch problems ae indicated by slipping ( engine rpms rising but not going ant where), slipping may be a faulty clutch master cylinder, shuddering as you let the clutch out ( clutch plate covered with grease /oil ---OR--- faulty engine mounts. pedal to the floor is a problem in the hydraulics or a cable failure. A cable failed and jammed will also cause a slipping clutch
so to summerise ,if the clutch is slipping --check out the hydraulics and cables. If it is shuddering --check out the engine mounts. Basically if it starts to slip after being driven for a period of time then it will be the clutch pressure plate /clutch plate worn

I'm not sure. You should try turning the ignition on and see if it will release a lock on the clutch or something.
Maybe, if the car is in neutral, you should try starting it. the gears may become locked as a safety feature like the steering lock. id definitely try turning the ignition on first though.

How to get to the air filter of a 2004 Audi A4

Take out the 2 screws at the red arrows. And then pull the top back towards the engine (as indicated by the middle red arrow). Disregard the yellow arrow.

Happened to me too, when the ECO light comes on automaticly (and it only blows hot air) it means it's simply broke.

I don't know the exact production date of your car, but there is/was an airco-related dealer recall for some cars, so just contact your dealer and have it fixed, but don't forget to mention the recall (it might save you a lot of money when your warranty has already expired).

You can find an instruction video on how to change an air filter at: http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-change-your-air-filter

I'm not sure wether you mean 1) "changing the original filter for a fresh one" or 2) "change the air filter to a different sporty type" (like i.e. an open air filter).

Either way it's pretty simple: the most important part is finding the correct filter for your car (model, type, year). A paper replacement filter (the same as the factory one) costs around 20 euro's and lasts around 30 000km, a more sporty cotton/foam one with improved airflow and durability costs around 60~70 euro (will last a life time, although needs cleaning every 50 000km) and might sound a little sportier.

Then find the airbox (which in your case is the big box on right with a big hose on the left, in front of the battery, can't miss). Unscrew the 3 bolds, remove the top and you'll see the air filter. Unscrew the placeholder on the left and the air filter will just pop out. Then pop in the replacement part and screw everything back. It's a simple, clean 5 minute job.

Replacing the whole airbox unit for an open filter is nearly as simple; get the correct replacement filter, unscrew the original airbox and screw the new one in place (following the directions which come with the replacement part). This is a 15 minute job, but still pretty simple and might have a noticable effect on performance (better throttle-response and 2~6 hp more). This looks something like: http://i42.tinypic.com/2yopqwj.jpg (the purple filter being the aftermarket K&N air filter).

It could be a few different things.
Did the check engine light come on before it quit running?
