About Clutch Release Bearings

A Audi clutch release bearing is located between the clutch fork and the pressure plate and is essential in the clutch operation. When a driver presses on the clutch this creates pressure, which is turned into hydraulic pressure in the clutch master cylinder and is transferred to the rod. This pressure is then exerted on to the Audi clutch release bearing which lastly pushes on the pressure plate and disconnects the engine when you bring it to a stop. This enables you to change gears.

One major cause of damage to a Audi clutch release bearing is waiting in traffic with the clutch disengaged but vehicle in gear. The excessive load causes stress to the Audi clutch release bearing. Issues with the Audi clutch release bearing are serious and should be rectified immediately. The most noticeable symptom is a grinding or whirring noise when applying the clutch, which goes away when you release the clutch pedal. This indicates that the Audi clutch release bearing is wearing out and may seize. If the bearing fails it will cause wear to the pressure plate and the attached clutch disk. A complete clutch replacement may be required.

Audi trivia

  • Audi has been responsible for many firsts in car design. One of the most impactful was the introduction of the dual-clutch gearbox, first seen in the Quattro S1 E2. Now, of course, they are commonplace.
  • Volkswagen owns the Audi brand, after buying it from Daimler-Benz way back in the 1960s.
  • The word Audi is a Latin translation of the word Horch, which incidentally is where we get the word audio from!
  • Audi was founded after the German engineer August Horch fell out with the co-founder of his first manufacturing company. He called the new company August Horch Automobilwerke GmbH, which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.
  • Not happy with just making one of the first automated cars, Audi even built and raced one in the Pikes Peak Hill race, setting records for speed even without a driver.
