    i had mine tested and got a fault p3103, motor for intake manifold flap (v157) malfunction. Do i replace this part or clean the motor,also if i replace does it need recalabrating to the ecu and if so does anyone know the code for this?
    cheers

    From reading around these units tend to fail and they either work or don’t, although some have achieved short-term success in cleaning them.
    I’ve just done this job on my car today and was a really easy job , 3 bolts with T30 heads hold it in.
    OK, the bolts are a bit tricky to get at but nothing impossible.
    Be aware that when these fail they also tend to blow one of the fuses in the radiator fan circuit (on the A3 anyway!) which then needs to be replaced or you will still get the engine management light on the dash.
    This caught me out today as I’d read it was Fuse 8 but in fact for my 2007 car proved to be Fuse 24 in the fusebox next to the battery.
    No calibration needed, just bolt it in, clear fault codes (and also fuse if yours has blown) and drive .

    Check all of your fuses

    I am having similar issued to you, I have just changed the ASV and it didn't stop the shudder, I checked everything I could and in the end I fiddled around with the connector on the wiring loom. The ASV now works intermittently so I belive it may be a bad connection in the plug. Worth a try
