I also have a 6MT and it worked for meI changed to the throttle "Direct: Controlled over Threshold Value" and not sure I feel much (any?) difference. I do have the 6MT if that makes a difference?
I notice it under all conditionsIs this something you feel only when stomping on it in the lower gears, or noticeable in normal conservative driving?
Didn't notice any change in taking off gently from a stop either.
There is no "dead spot" in the throttle - it is just a linear response now (also feels livelier, but that could be just because the "dead spot" is removed)Those that think this is such a great improvement can you more clearly explain what change you notice?
I have only the throttle response mod done, and it seems very clear and obvious to me. Maybe if the original throttle response didn't bother you, it's not noticeable to you?Maybe I have to try both settings back to back to detect the change?
My wife didn't notice it. I can definitely feel it and I know it is there. I could also understand how it would be hard to detect for some.Thanks for the input,
I'll change it back and try again for comparison.
It does drive predictably with the change, but the way it was before might not have bothered me.
On the TDI there are only:Thanks for the throttle tweak. I'll try it out after the snow stops.
There's also a popular VCDS tweak on GTIs and Rs for reducing something called "starting vibration reduction", but I doubt that applies to a low-power car like a TDI (dodges tomatoes ): Enter ABS controller, select adaptions, select "starting vibration reduction" from the drop-down menu, change the value from Strong to Deactivated.

Hello, on my 2015 Jetta TDI, when I type in the Security Code 19249, it won't let me in. Is this mod not available on my 2015 EA288 car?Wow, this throttle response mod is great - it's really changed the way I feel about the car. I might even not chip it after this.
The throttle response on these cars is really wacky, and very frustrating to live with. The first 1/2 inch of travel is fine, but the next 1/2 inch does nothing. Then, after that, it kicks in again. I absolutely hated that.
Today on the Mk7 forum I was introduced to a throttle mod http://www.golfmk7.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2491&highlight=throttle&page=68 (post 1155) that addresses this situation. I've only taken the car for a short test drive so far, but it seems to have tremendously improved the response - it is much more linear now.
Throttle Response Mod:
Open VCDS / Select / 44 - Steering Assist / Security Access / 19249 / Do It / OK / Adaptation / Channel (drop down menu) / Driving Profile Switchover / New Value (drop down menu) / Direct: Controlled over Threshold Value (original was Gradual, controlled by Time) / Do It / Yes / OK / Go Back / close, go back etc.
It would be great to know how this works for anyone else.
Andy, I believe the Jetta not being on the MQB platform would mean different security access codes. Maybe a search on Rosstech's site could provide more info?Hello, on my 2015 Jetta TDI, when I type in the Security Code 19249, it won't let me in. Is this mod not available on my 2015 EA288 car?
Thank You for the reply. That is what I was afraid of. I've searched high and low all over the place and can't find the code. The search continues...I believe the Jetta not being on the MQB platform would mean different security access codes. Maybe a search on Rosstech's site could provide more info?
I believe the TDIs have different bleeder valves where the diaphragm is not removable. It looks different on the inside in comparison to what is shown in the writeups. I couldn't figure it out without attempting to break it. You could drill it out larger pretty easily though.Under the hood:
Remove clutch delay valve

I spent a little money and got the ECS bleed block that uses a speed bleeder. It took so little time to bleed that thing compared to before! I also changed to a different clutch at the same time, so cannot really compare the feel accurately.
The delay valve IMO needs to go if you're thinking of upgrading the clutch or if you're tuned. There were a handful of times when driving spiritedly that I would have my foot off the clutch pedal from a quick engagement, yet the revs would not come down immediately as if the disc was slipping while the pressure plate was being "delayed" from full engagement.
On the TDI there are only:
Normal, Strong, and Maximum choices
I did change the throttle response and noticed a bit better response around town.
Nice, I'm up the road in Frisco. Have always wanted to stop by their place.I had a local diesel shop change the throttle setting and change the vibration reduction from “Strong” to “Normal”.... I’m going to try that out for the weekend. The throttle is smoother and more predictable, and it seems like there’s a little less torque lag. Want to see how happy I am with that before flashing the ECU. I was able to drive Kerma’s MK7 development car with 6MT and the tune and a larger turbo. That was fun!
