So I went to start my B5 S4 about a week ago, and the clutch just goes straight to the floor, the clutch line blew off, and all the clutch fluid leaked out. I had my clutch completely replaced less than 8 months and 2,000 miles ago. The shop removed the transmission to see if it was something in there, and it was not. They seem to be completely stumped, and have ordered a new slave cylinder and other parts to bench test to see if a current part has gone bad. Would you guys have any more insight?
I may not have explained it the best, but my last conversation with the shop regarding what actually happened was a week ago, and I've only received updates about what it isn't. Also, do I have recourse on the warranted work, or does this sound like something they didn't touch is causing the issue?
Also, as another FYI, my clutch pivot broke about a month ago when attempting to start the car, so I'm assuming something is causing the stress, and the weakest point in the system is breaking.
