AKS Braided Clutch Line - MQB EA888.3 Models - AKSBLMQB

Our AKS braided clutch line for the EA888.3 2.0 TSI MQB platform models is designed to help reduce "sponge" in the pedal caused by the OEM line expanding. Making this a highly recommended addition to a performance clutch set up due to the slightly heavier pedal.  The braided line removes the factory fitted vibration diaphragm. Removal of this allows fluid to travel directly to the slave cylinder and removes the spongey feel on the first part of the pedal stroke, essentially reducing any delay in the travel of fluid through the line. The braided line can also assist with the feel of higher RPM shifts.

We recommend fitting our braided clutch lines with a billet bleed block at the same time (can be purchased using the drop down above together at a discounted price) The bleed block eliminates the internal restrictor found in the factory plastic bleed block, creating faster, firmer clutch engagement and disengagement. As well as upgrading the plastic OEM part to a far more substantial billet alloy.

We make our braided lines in house, in our workshop to order at AKS. This enables us to provide you the option of  which colour hose you would like to suit your car / engine bay. You can view the variety of colours available using the dropdown menu above.

We have designed and developed all our braided lines on our own shop vehicles / vehicles in our workshop, with perfect measurements and fittings to suit every model, reinforcing the fact you will get a perfect fitting braided line every time from us. In the case of the MQB line, it requires a specific bend in the 90 degree right angle fitting, over and above the TFSI line which is the main differentiation between the two products.

Q - Does the braided line replace both parts of the factory clutch line ?

A - Yes, it does. The AKS braided line goes from the bleed block on the gearbox, to the master cylinder. The idea is to remove the entire factory line including the vibration diaphragm. Not to use the braided line with the diaphragm!

Q - Is installation straight forward ?

A - Yes, as simple as removing the factory parts and reinstalling the new one piece line. Bleeding the system will be required once fitted.

Q - Is the braided line / bleed block just for use on vehicles with performance clutches ?

A - No, you can fit this braided line on an otherwise totally stock vehicle and still notice an improvement, although the improvements will likely be more noticeable on a modified vehicle / where a performance clutch is fitted.

Q - How do i know which braided line i need for my car ?

A - If you are in any doubt, please contact us with which vehicle you have, email - info@akstuning.com, phone - 01234 822324, or via Facebook / Instagram - AKS Tuning.
