Yes, 3 hours in a garage using decent air/battery tools. Have done it before on the car - they're really not a difficult clutch to change.

You do know what DMF is used in the helix clutch kits from AKS, yes?

I'd certainly be replacing your CV boots (inner or outer?) as you'll find the grease will start covering a lot of the underside components of the car. You say last year, so that's a pretty long time that it's been left, if they're devoid of grease then they've a good chance of grinding/failing so that'll give you issues, some of which might fit with the symptoms you describe.
Get the car up on a ramp and have the shafts looked at as your starting point and go from there. Some of the other bushes underneath may be found to also be worn or have play so they might help eliminate the issues you have, but shafts would be my first port of call if it was highlighted a while back.
Good luck  :happy2:
Technical Workshop / Miss fire at idle ed30 gti
« Last post by e4n94 on November 10, 2018, 05:31:27 PM Started by e4n94  »
I have a 2008 golf gti 30 edition I have recently noticed the car Miss firing on idle and only on idle I have put the engine under load but runs ok no problem. I change the spark plugs 2 months ago and recently change one coil pack due to a code p0302 cylinder 2 miss fire but still the car Miss fires on idle.

The other code I have is Random cylinder missfire p0300. I was thinking it could be a injector so I tried some red X but still no joy. Am I right in saying it could be down to carbon build up in the inlet and if so how much of a job is it to remove the inlet manifold

Not sure if it’s the catch or the handle

@Pudding  checked phase angle with VCDS. Cold engine at idle read -5kw stayed like this for 10 mins. After a half hour drive to tps and back re read and it’s sat at -2kw. Also looked at block 91 and did a quick log of continuous adjustment vs specified and they follow each other nicely when revving the engine.


The rattle I’m concerned with again wasn’t there until warm. After getting home and being stationary for a few mins the fuel line rattle crept in too. Next job is to tackle fuel line rattle then have a good listen around the bottom of the engine.

Mk5 General Area / Re: Would Audi S5 brakes fit on a GTI?

S3 are generic iron calipers used on loads of hatchbacks.  S5 are probably the same as the R8's, which people have used on MK5s.
