    Diesel Purge on Common Rail?

    Hi, has anyone done this on a 1.6TDI CR Engine? The setup from my fuel filter appears to be a little different! Thanks.

    Cruise Control Pulsing

    Today I disconnected the front left abs sensor, went for a little drive, even though fault in abs on dashboard, speedo and cruise still worked?? Then removed and cleaned both front abs speed sensors, went for a drive and still same issue with cruise pulsing. Rears abs sensors look a lot more...

    Cruise Control Pulsing

    Hi, Thanks for this. I was wondering why both front wheel sensors might vary by 1kph... I could understand the front left only doing it and this leading to the cruise going haywire as a result. But nonetheless the change if abs sensors or hub is definitely worth it to see if it makes any...

    Cruise Control Pulsing

    Hi again, I have managed to put the VCDS log of the abs sensors into a chart, located HERE. As can be seen, the front two vary by about 1kph quite regularly. I am wondering whether anyone else has done a log of their ABS Sensors and whether such a differential on the front sensors is...

    Cruise Control Pulsing

    Hi, went for a drive measuring abs speed output on all 4 wheels via VCDS. Whilst at a steady straight ahead speed, the 2 front sensors varied by +/- 1km/h (would change every 2 seconds or so) whilst the back stayed at the set speed. Perhaps this is pretty normal, or could it be enough to...

    Cruise Control Pulsing

    Hi, thanks for this idea. I did have the front right coil spring changed about 2 months ago and can't remember it doing that beforehand. I will check some 'on the road' readings from the abs sensors and report an update, but I thought that any anomalies might have thrown a fault code which...

    Cruise Control Pulsing

    Hi there, Thanks for this. I did think that but can't see a leak and understand that the Golf MK6 cruise does not operate from the vacuum. If I am wrong though, please correct me and I will revisit the engine bay ;)

    Cruise Control Pulsing

    ok, slight update this pulsing/fluctuating is noticeable at 70mph too. The rpm going up or down during this 'blip' is negligible on the display but I feel the surge and drop through the seat, perhaps once every 2 seconds or so. I have been looking at the vacuum pipes and they seem fine with no...

    Cruise Control Fluctuations

    Hi there, I know this thread is pretty old, but I have the same issue with my Golf 1.6TDI CR Bluemotion 2011 model with 97K miles. Did anyone get to the bottom of it and whether there was any adjustment that could be made by VCDS to dampen it somewhat? Between 40-50mph, my cruise control...

    Cruise Control Pulsing

    Hi, Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately accelerating past the cruise set speed and allowing it to settle back has no effect on the issue, it returns. Measured accelerator position in advanced measuring blocks and it looks fine. What is strange is that this issue only happens below 50mph (up...

    Cruise Control Pulsing

    Hi all, I have a strange issue that has recently developed on my 2011 Golf MK6 1.6 TDI. If I set the cruise control at a speed between 40-50mph (around 2000rpm), the car seems to surge every couple of seconds, like blipping the throttle to the desired speed, backing off by less than 1mph then...

    Clutch pedal clicks when pressed / released

    I took the pedal off myself in the end, put some felt on the clip, fitted it back in, noise gone. It was simply a tolerance fit issue that manifested itself with a very annoying noise. The scary thing was taking all the bits off to get to the pedal bolt but I tried it in the end and it wasn't...

    Clutch pedal clicks when pressed / released

    OK the click noise is becoming more pronounced now since I sprayed the grease a few weeks ago. Thinking of replacing the clip, but would need to remove the clutch pedal first. Has anyone removed the clutch pedal, if so would appreciate a guide and whether it's difficult to do? Thanks...

    Clutch pedal clicks when pressed / released

    Update: I sprayed a load of grease on the overspring, didn't make any difference...still clicked when pedal depressed. So then I sprayed a load towards where the master cylinder pushrod clip meets the pedal. Clicking only happening right at top of travel now which is a lot more bearable. Upon...

    Clutch pedal clicks when pressed / released

    Thanks for this. I think it will be quite difficult to get the spring off without removing a few things first on my car. Looks like I need to take off some air conditioning ducting to get to any nut! Going to try another grease, last time it stopped it for a month, perhaps I just need to find...
