  2. If someone is selling genuine Ross Tech products and they are not genuine full versions, then the person is trading illegally

    Done the alignment today on mine with my Vagcom, haven't cleaned it though as the parts dept at both my local Audi and VW dealers were closed. I think it was out by about 0.4%, has sorted out my car hunting on idle and drives better too. Will be cleaning it next weekend, to see what crap is lurking

    I've reset mine using the Liquid Gauge, is that the same as the VAG COM does anyone know?

    cleaned and reset using the liquid gauge. before it was idling very roughly (rev needle jumping)

    and when acclerating softly it was hesitant and dump at random times -

    now it is smooth all the way, much better.

    if we cant afford VAG-COM will diconnecting the battery for 30 mins suffice?

    Is it worth removing the Throttle body to do the cleaning or just leave it on? New gaskets will be required when re-fitting i presume?!

    Yes, same procedure.

    Plug in, ignition on, LEAVE THROTTLE ALONE.
    Open controller 1 Engine
    Open basic settings
    Go to channel 060 and then GO

    Leave for 30 seconds before disconnecting.

    Mike

    vag-com?

    Hi, i have only bought my leon cupra last week, and i dont know loads about cars. This vag-com looks pretty good. Where can you get it done? or is it something you do yourself?
