    I've recently fitted a new flywheel and clutch as the old one was worn and creating a 'shake' through the cabin when idling, especially when on a hill, and was advised by an Audi technician that this would solve the problem. I have used genuine spares and even though the car runs great an smooth I still get a shake through the cabin. Having returned to the main dealer they advised ma that my car needs a software update for the injector timings. Has anybody heard of this issue before? Also, having had 2 recalls shouldn't this software update been done?

    I have carried out a smooth running control update before but only on one vehicle that was affected, recalls are generated when a problem is widespread. Let them give the update a try if thats what they think.

    I've just spoken to audi and they confirmed that there is a sofware update for the injector timing available so looks like ill get it booked in and hopefully the matter will be resolved. thanks for all the info guys, much appreciated.
    Just out of curiosity tdi-man how much is new feul pump as that will be my next course of action if the software update doesnt solve it!
