    does anyone know how to test the coil pack to find out which ones faulty as ive read up on changing it and it seems easy so if i can i rather try sorting it out at home before handing it in somewhere

    I had this same problem when cleaning the spark plugs.

    I would recommend taking the plugs out at seeing if they are still good.

    Stick them back in if they are and look at the coil packs. I didnt click mine in properly the last time and that's why I was getting bad shuddering, check one hasn't come loose.

    If not then your best bet is to leave it in somewhere

    Replacing coil pack is about £40 i think

    did this the other day! unplug them one at a time! if it gets worse and car almost stalls then that one was fine, but if it remains the same then that ones broken!

    worth giving SEAT a ring for parts as I got one from VW dealer and it was cheaper than everywhere else i checked.

    Maybe not the right time for this bit of advice, but here it is anyway, buy a basic scan tool like the Gendan VAG one direct from www.gendan.co.uk £40 delivered, it will tell you what the problem is normally and if its a coil it will tell you which one it is. Remember this might happen again with one of the other coils - so maybe be prepared.
