    Is there a diy guide on replacing the clutch switch?

    I'm planning on doing this to see if it cures my over revving issue.

    Also is it wise to use a thinner engine oil for the winter. Currently using fully synth 5w40 and about a litre top up in there of 0w40 mobil 1.

    An idea could be to check the switch with vag-com. Im pretty sure there must be a measuring block for this sensor and you would be able to see it go on or off... Wouldnt know where to find it in vag com though.

    Just a thought before you go and buy a switch

    Thanks for the suggestion.....vagcoms showing no errors.

    would it definately log a fault if it needed replacing?

    Can anyone answer my oil question?

    No idea on the oil.

    No not nessesarily. But you should be able to see if the sensor actuakky works by looking at it with vag com and pressing the pedal to see if the switch is returning the correct value.... Im not sure what measuring block you would need to open though to see this information.
