I had a same car (engine rebuilt by audi then remapped) and we used it as a company pool car. It is quick, much quicker and pulls all the way through the revs. I was impressed.
I have an octavia vrs 2.0 tsi with 220bhp and its not that far off.
Something has gone wrong with the OP’s remap i...
That’s what I thought originally and thought it was just tge battery. However its a mechanically driven pump off the aux belt.
Basically at standstill if you steer really slowly thw wheel is not that stiff however sudden steering change or steering quickly it goes really hard.
Hi Diesel bob, thank you. That’s a good suggestion and was one of the things the second garage did as they are VAG specialist and know their stuff. It was something they checked and unfortunately wasn’t to be.
Looks like I will need to change the power steering pump on my b8 2.0 tdi (caga) as 2 garages are now not sure why my steering is heavy.
How easy is it? Does anyone have a guide or helpful hints?
Hoping I can do it without removing the fromt bumper.
Any pointers or help would be great!
i’m normally ok with finding part numbers but this one has stumped me.
I have a fault with my air intake temperature (g42). Fault is:
5552 - Intake Air Temp Sensor (G42)
P0111 - inplausible signal
The car is a 2.0tdi CAGA engine.
Can anyone tell me what the part number is of the sensor pls...
Well here's an update...
Changed the front caliper 2 weeks ago and 1500 miles of trouble free. Now I don't know if its me but when the brakes a warm they feel like they are all slightly dragging.
I did a full bleed when the caliper was changed. I've run a scan and no faults. I'm stumped by...
I tested mine by lifting the car on all four sides do a brake fluid change and then spinning the discs. One was noticeably more resistant than the other even though the piston would eventually retract.
I also had a laser temperature monitor which showed disc on one side was about 70degC warmer...
I’m pleased to report no more judder for me! Turns out it was the caliper which wasn’t seized just ‘lazy’ at returning. This eventually was overheating pads and discs leading to judder.
The pads and discs were new so i haven’t replaced them and there is no more judder!
Put your hands over your brakes and check if one of them is hot. I have the same issue (read my other threads) as I am having a stuck caliper which is leading to horrible judder from 70mph onwards. My disc is blue from the heat cycles. Could be that?
This one is driving me mad and could really do with some help.
My front right brake is binding and holding the car back. It's been getting red hot compared to the others.
I fitted new discs, pads and flexi hoses (both sides) 2 months ago which seem to have cured the issue above...
