Re: Taking off the throttle body?

I cleaned mine a few weeks ago, didn't realign the throttle body, and the car didn't drive very well. I stalled whenever coming to a stop and throttle response was hokey...

I would highly recommend not cleaning your TB, unless you have access to a vag-com.

I'm sure some have gotten away with cleaning the TB and not realigning it, but it's up to you ultimately... If you go to the dealer they will charge you a ridiculous price to realign your TB.
