Re: Throttle Pedal adjustment

These polos don’t have a throttle cable, it’s controlled electronically and has a throttle control sensor at the top of the accelerator pedal linked to the ECU to the throttle body. There is a bit of play on the pedal, I have a GTI which does lift towards you quite a bit.Image

Climatronic control unit

Hi,

Probably an easy answer but can the digital Climtronic unit be fitted to a car that has the twisty knobs as standard?

Re: Window down quick, up slow

The plastic clips are always the weakest part, I had the same issue recently, was really struggling to raise and needed to help it up. This was due to where the cable locates in the clip on the runner, it had broken so the motor was trying to pull up on one clip which created an imbalance and hence ...

Cheers pal!
