    Clock Spring Replacment

    Hi Guys, Does anyone have a link or details on how the electronic module underneath the steering wheel drops down correctly to replace the clock spring. I can force it but a bit wary in-case it breaks. I apologise if this is already posted somewhere, but I cannot for the life of me find it...

    Limp Mode

    I'm looking to have the DPF removed towards the back end of the month. Car has just gone into limp mode, is there anyone in the Luton area that can force a regen for me without having to paid garage prices. As this is likely to add around quarter of what the actual removal is. Cheers, Martin

    Clutch / Accelerator Response

    I wouldn't say slipping. It could be something with the accelerator... I'd say maybe around half way before the clutch will engage and change gear. Roughly around the height of the foot rest if that helps at all.

    Clutch / Accelerator Response

    Hi, Recently I've noticed, when trying / pulling away the car is stalling due to either the lack of response from the clutch or the accelerator. The clutch does feel "loose" (not sure how else to describe it) and the accelerator doesn't always kick in when it should. Anyone any ideas what this...

    2.0 tdi Boost Problems BKD 140

    old thread to drag up but, i've lost boost up until around 2500rpm. although mine is a 170, I've ran DPF cleaner, blasted the car and ran EGR Valve cleaner... still the same. Feels like the power is urging to release, but nothing... think it could be something similar?

    Hi Justin, I've got a 170 too, I've only ever had to top the oil up between services after some numpty never replaced the dip stick correctly.

    Lack of Boost

    ok I'm not convinced the DPF is the issue. I've been on some long journeys lately so I guess all the crap should be burnt off. I can feel the power waiting to kick in, but nothing. Any ideas what else it could be? An engine clean up in needed due to the dip stick not being replaced correctly...

    Lack of Boost

    Peeps, Slight problem, been having DPF "issues". Because I'm only doing short journeys through the week I was having to take it for a blast to clear the DPF every week. About 3 weeks ago I added DPF cleaner to the fuel tank. Light hasn't re-appeared since however, I now seem to be lacking...

    Horn and Aibag issues...

    Cheers Mick. All research points to the clock spring (top right) part in the pic. Hopefully it will just be a lose wire somewhere. How do I remove the steering wheel.. do I need to disconnect the battery befote attempting?
