for those of you whos clutch's have gone, did you notice slipping before you noticed engagement problems? maybe im just paranoid, but it feels like my clutch is letting out very late, very end of travel, more than usual. i know this is common in passats, but it feels like this is more exaggerated as of late. i am chipped and when i floor throttle in second after fully engaged clutch, i get no slip, just tire burn which leads me to believe that clutch holds strong, even under lots of power..... its a 2000 with 75k...i purchased it with 65k. anyone know any way to tell how much life is left?? thanks for comments.
