So I've got a 1.4 tdi 2001 polo, and there seems to be allot if slack in my accelorator pedal, it's sat way to low but it's got a short cable that isn't adjustable that runs to an electric box, which is the electric throttle, had it all off but no idea how to adjust it to make the pedal sit in the right place, any ideas?
I've just gone to change the brake fluid on my AEX 6n, did both rears fine but got to the front and it looks like someone has taken a hacksaw to the bleeder screw? Can't get a grip on it at all with moles, or by heating and bashing on a smaller socket. Its seized in pretty tight anyway. As it had got dark i tried continuing the change by taking the brake hoses off the calipers and just letting the fluid run clean, then tightening again. This was probably a stupid move as the brakes have basically lost all power, only biting the tiniest bit when the pedal's on the floor 😞 Is there any way to do this? Don't want to take the calipers off as the rubber boot on the bolts is also missing, ie a horrible, rusty, dirty job. Cheers
Hi guys, I have posted on here before regarding this issue, but I've had more of a look at the car now, based on previous comments. Basically, when driving from cold, the car is pretty much spot on gear change wise, the linkage noise is a bit more apparent than in other cars but that's about it. Once it's warmed up, it's like a totally different car. The clutch pedal goes stiff, and it creaks pretty badly, it hates downshifting (when turning in/approaching a roundabout etc). It also crunches into gear quite often, and there is a whine when decelerating. If I'm at a set of lights, it won't go into first unless I press the pedal a couple of times. The next day, once it's cooled down, it's fine again. It never pops out of gear, and the clutch doesn't slip. Once in gear it drives fine apart from the whining. We jacked it up and checked the level, fluid came out of the fill hole quite a lot, so we drained about 1/2 a litre until it trickled out, the fluid looked pretty fresh, when I bought the car the previous owner had clearly kept his eye on it, as he gave me some fluid with it. My mate adjusted my clutch cable at the same time, and it seemed a lot better, but again once it had warmed up it went back to being a massive annoyance! The clutch cable is pretty new, but I didn't fit it Can anyone shed some light on this for me. I've had one of these before, and whilst it changed gear fine, it did whine. Part of me thinks the whining is gearbox related, and the rest is another issue. Thanks for any help!
