    right ive got the old one out and the new one in place without the wire and clip in place yet.

    its in place now but doesnt feel very stable at all ? does it need to be right in or does it clip in place.

    clip holds it in place but it should push home and feel sturdy

    Im not sure on the 1.8t as mine is a TDI but on mine you have to give it a good old shove then attach the clip
