Re: 2.0 Diesel dreadful throttle response

I can confirm the issue, but it seems to be temperature dependant. Very bad, when outside temperature exceeds 28° to 30° celsius; that´s at least the result of my observations.

Re: Vibration (not engine mount)

Strange paddle shifting behaviour?

Could someone please check out or tell me, if it is normal, that the automatic transmission shifts down more than only one gear, when pulling the paddle in D at around 35 to 37 mph (56-60 km/h), from 6th gear down to 3rd or 4th gear? Seems odd. The RPM go up from 1100 to way more than 2000. It only ...

The way I drive? Think of an eighty year old fellow and add twenty more years.

Re: Car is very jerky for first couple of minutes, normal?

I am experiencing something quiet similar. While braking from whatever speed it is almost impossible to maintain a continuous deceleration . It describes best, as if the engine / transmission are working against the brakes. Whenever the transmission shifts down a gear, braking gets in a very percept...

Re: FIX: XE sewing machine rattle in passenger cabin (TSB)

All this is after I have read the entire thread more confusing than concluding.

Could someone post pictures and part#s of the wrong/old and new earth strap?
