With regards to my previous post on the Audi 200 Quattro--about my clutch popping back to its normal self after being halfway down yesterday morning amidst the cold weather. See: http://forums.audiworld.com/v8/msgs/128860.phtml
How much will it cost me to bleed the line? How much for a master/slave or new clutch?
Should I worry about the clutch? What would you do if this happened to you?
Thanks in advance for your input.

Bleed the system first. That will only cost you time and brake fluid.
If that doesnt really help anything Id look into getting a new clutch master and slave. Unsure how much they are for the 5ktq's though.
To test the clutch, get it on the highway and up to a decent speed, then punch it, if the revs climb and the car doesnt continue to accellerate the clutch is slipping. Odds are your clutch is fine, just the hydraulics need replacing.

M/C and Slave should be too bad. I have a NOS master if needed. That symptom is usually Master but doing both in a keeper car isn't a bad thing. MC is easy if you can stand on your head, the slave a bit more involved. Clutch depends on miles really.

Just to get an idea on the cost for parts--how much would the NOS master cost me?

I would also question the the throwout bearing getting hung up on the guide tube. What car is this 200 10v or 20v? I'd replace both the slave and master at the same time. Bleeding is just the price of fluid and your effort. I would recomend getting a motive power bleeder to help get the job done.<ul><li><a href="http://www.foreignautomotiveparts.com/">http://www.foreignautomotiveparts.com/</a</li></ul>

I appreciate the tip on testing my clutch. Just my luck--I wanted to test it yesterday but it snowed. What would be a decent speed--like 60 or 70mph?

Can't imagine much more than $55 or so, not at the dealership of course!
