Throttle position sensor 1.4Tdi - gaining access

Recommended Posts

Anyone know how to get to the throttle pot on the TDi? Seems to me that the dash may have to come out, but if there's an easier way I'd like to know before commit.

you don't have to take the dash out at all, just get some small tools and take an undertray out.

torch may help.

I was under there last night fighting the clutch pedal, which is why I fancy making the hole really big by removing the dash. I'm 6'5", it's not fun working in such a small space.

tdi/gti easier due to hydro clutch

Take the seat out? It's never a fun position upside down with your arms pinned.

then you get to lie on the seat bracket.

I'm a bit closer to solving this. Managed to get the lower wiring connector block thing disconnected and out of the way. I can see the nut on the pot through the fuse box hole but still can't get my big hands to it. I think I can get a ratchet spanner to the nut but how to lock everything whilst I tighten it?

Just spent some time on Elsawin and realised that you rotate the pot by loosening 2 screws from the clutch pedal side and then rotate the whole pot. For info, it's an m6 screw with a torx head. Don't know the size yet.
