    Noticed when logging that throttle would not open fully (WOT), stopping at about 89%. Tried adaptation no change. Removed throttle body and cleaned it up. Not much oil. Tried adaptation again. Still wont open fully. Any ideas or is a new throttle body needed.

    Assuming this is on your car in avatar, have you opened it up & checked the mechanics as the teeth do break on the derv versions but not sure on petrol.

    That is open fully, it's in degrees. 89 is close enough to 90 degrees in my book

    Thanks for all replies. I noticed the problem because it doesn't come up with WOT (wide open throttle) in the throttle status log. Only overrun, idle, partial throttle. Not sure it's right. Anyone logged theirs and tell me what they found please.
