    hi guys, i recently put up a few thread with some problems ive been having but they seem to have dissapeared so here it goes again...lol

    1) when i got the car one number plate bulb didnt work, my BF changed the bulb but it still didnt work, could it be a case of just a new holder needed or is there an individual fuse for these as we cant find one.

    2) we also tried changing the side light bulbs for LED ones because one bulb had blew. but when he plugged in the new LED bulb it flickered a few times and went out, now weve tried putting in a normal 5W bulb in but nothing happens, there is just a warning light on the dash. we have tried looking for a fuse but cant find one, anyone got any ideas?

    3) when the car is idling it judders sometimes but the needle on the dash doesnt drop or rise. but when pulling away its fine, anyone got any ideas? ive just changed the fuel filter and it still does it.

    any help appreciated.

    thanks

    :D

    1: check the bulb holder for corrosion & make sure the pins arent bent out of position in any shape or form

    2: where did you check for fuses, end of drivers dash there's a hidden cover, just prise this of & there's a load of fuses there, also check your bulb holder hasnt been damaged

    3: sensor fault maybe, but do you mean juddering as in about to stall?

    Is it a tdi?

    The judder may be the infamous flywheel problem.

    I have the same thing on mine, and this is what I have put it down to.

    Feels like a little wobble now and then on idle
