Polo tdi help!

Post by Tdijordan » Fri Oct 13, 2017 4:01 pm

Sooo has anyone had an issue when accelerating the car feels like it is braking on its own! Still pulls like it normally does but now it’s like someone is pressing the brake!
Has anyone had anything similar?

You might have a binding brake caliper

How would I check that? I just had a cv gaiter replaced could the mechanic knocked anything?

Have same issue, had it on other cars too.

Its usually the rears.

Pull away using clutch only then into neutral, as it stops you will be able to tell if its stopping naturally or with assistance.
