Hello, this is my first post here!
Thank you for reading my post...
I have a 2004 Jetta 2.0 liter. A couple of days ago I replaced the front brakes, and today after stopping at a traffic light, the clutch dropped to the floor unresponsive. After turning the car off and back on and got pressure back and drove home. As I searched I found an comment of something similar happening to a TDI jetta, so I am surprised to know the brake and the clutch works together. The brake reservoir was full, and the car seems to now drive normal except when I pushed the clutch all the way down, I can hear a noise that was not there before.
My first instinct tells me to bleed the front brake lines... do that makes sense? is there a chance of air in the clutch system? Can it be purged of air? The brake fluid level did not changed before and after the brake replacement, and there is not fluids in the ground anywhere... and the brake pedal feels normal
Your help is greatly appreciated,
