The brake lights appear to be functioning correctly,? Anyone know if a faulty maf would cause the light to come on ???? Its just the car appears hesitant just after 5rpm .

I would check your cats.. When I had my Mk4 R32 they had totally broken up inside the exhaust can...

Over on tyresmoke a few other owners found the same when they where installing their miltek exhausts,

This will deffo cause the light to come on.... Wait for it!

VW cats for the R32 cost over ?1k!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

check the o2 sensors.

Most of the time the cat is fine and you may have knicked the wires on the sensors with stones flying up or something. If they get wet they can throw codes as well.

yes they should show up on vag com.

there are 2 in front of the cats and 2 after.

They are right in the middle of the car sticking out of the top of the exhaust.

The only fault code showing was the ABS speed sensor which has now been cleared, Nothing else showed up.? ?My local garage has not charged me but said to see how it goes for a few days.?Would this affect the restricted rev range ??

restricted?? do you mean it cuts the revs like a traction control unit or is it like a hard limiter? at what rpm?

Baz

P.S. just read the first post again. Check the valve on the back box. I reckon it's stuck closed.

You can go for Milltek or Blueflame Sports Cats

Blueflame is about 490

Milltek is about 800

I have the BlueFlame now, use to have the Milltek

Dont see any difference though

Or you can buy my original cats for the R32,
