Sounds like a dead release bearing.  Had something similar on my old Lupo GTI

Was the DMF 'flushed' or replaced? 

Something to watch out for with ours, but I give it beans when I drive it  :grin:

Ah sorry mate, I misread that as DPF  :doh: :grin:

I must admit, I sometimes pull away in second as well.  It doesn't seem to mind it though  :grin:

I need to get one of those "clutch to start" bypass looms as I hate cranking with no oil pressure on the thrust bearing.

 :signLOL: Flush a DMF I thought you'd gone crackers Kev!

Yeah know what you mean about having to press the clutch :stupid:

I've held back on doing the remap, I don't really want to fork out for injectors and fuel pump ideally.

No, same mate.  TBH the 140 feels pretty brisk anyway to be fair.  I've been reading up on it and some folk say remapping the 140 to 170 makes for a punchier engine than the factory 170 as its less laggy.

MOT time, failed on 2 anti roll bar drop links and a side repeater inop.

Side repeater is an LED unit £50 from VW dealer!

Pair of drop links from ECP £34 - Had to cut the nuts off with a grinder! :evilgrin:

Another year another MOT, passed with just advisories on front pads wearing thin and slight play in osf drop link.

We fitted neww links last year, Starline crap from ECP. Won't be getting them again.  :scared:

Tsk, how could you  :grin:  Lemforder minimum  :happy2:

Good news on the pass though  :happy2:

Done anything fruity with it yet?  Our MK6 is still standard  :grin:  I looked into it and the faff wasn't worth it tbh and too many comments about remaps causing frequent DPF regens.  Not in for that nonsense.

No not done anything with it 'fruity' -it does it's regens at weird times, mostly when idling, which shakes the car runs rough, fan on flat out.

2009 Scirocco 2.0 TDI once in a blue moon I get a beep and ESP fault on centre dash. Only does it on initial start up over night like I say very random. No ESP/ABS lights stay on when it does it. No fault codes (checked on VCDS and OBD eleven. Weird one. Any ideas?

Gave the Scirocco a bit of a service today. Oil & filter, fuel filter, front pads, aux. drive belt as I've seen what a mess they can do if they fail and go inside the cam belt cover. The Starline front anti roll bar links I fitted last year are both shot so bought a couple from local motor factors and lobbed them on , I say that but we had to cut the top nuts off again with a grinder!

Had a remap from M17 performance recently, up to 180bhp/400nm. Goes well but I think it may have had an ecomap on before judging by the flash counts.

Since the weather has changed car has also been struggling on cranking especially if i've not driven the car for a day, so I've fitted new battery, hopefully that will stop the ESP warning! Yuasa 096 from Halfords £109.99 FFS!
