I fitted a new speed sensor last year (Bosch part) and all was well until this morning, when I overtook a car and things went a bit lumpy. The EPC light came on, followed by the EML. I stupidly stopped the engine when I was dropping my wife off and it wouldn't start again. I had a code scanner with me, so I scanned the car and got 16706 - Engine Speed Sensor (G28): No Signal. So I paid a silly price to get a new sensor from the local dealer so I could get the car running again today. It's spring here (Finland) and things are still a bit brisk, and 6 months of ice and snow are melting. So I had to do the work in a wet, icy car park, which wasn't ideal. And when I got the old sensor out, it seems to have exploded, or had the end ripped off! I've fitted the new one, and now I hear a rhythmic rubbing sound, which gets worse/louder when I push the clutch in. I just drove it about a mile home and parked it on the driveway. I'm going to see a VAG specialist tomorrow for an opinion, but right now I'm imagining the worst. Is there something wrong with the gearbox, and it's going to take the end off another 125€ sensor? Aghhhh... I just haven't a clue.
