VW / throttle-body adaptation w/o scan tool ?
Posted to Technical Discussion Forum on 10/27/2014 9 Replies

Vehicle idles good (and rev's up normally when not under load) but will stall when accelerator pedal is depressed (under load that is). Not sure if this configuration has the ability to do a throttle-body-adaptation (re-alignment) without the use of a special tool? There's certainly distinct throttle-servo noises when the key is first turned to the ACC position (giving the impression of auto-adjust) but as correct procedural steps are unavailable, perhaps a step or two may be required to perform a proper T-body re-adaptation. **Note** Battery was disconnected for several hours, and vehicle seemed to run fine when it first arrived.
