Hi, has anyone upgraded their throttle pedal on 2013 Q3 2.0 tdi Sline Quattro and old one spare for sale. Or knows if the spare You have will fit mine. I keep getting fault code P0121 throttle position sensor fault.
Hi gellydeal, I have the original pedal from my 1.4TFSI Manual MY2017 Sline Nav Manual, but it has the mechanical "kick down feel" device needed for an Stronic. (This pedal assembly is also fitted to other VAG cars. I fitted St/St pedals to my 1.2TSI Manual MY2014 Yeti SE but back then there were different manual and auto part nos.)
Have a look at the Q3 2016MY page: https://audi.7zap.com/en/rdw/audi+q3/aq3/2016-855/7/721-721060/
You'll see they now list the same Pt No. for both manual and Stronic, that comes with Item 14 already fitted!
My best guess is that VAG did a stock cost reduction analysis and found they saved money by "giving away" the plastic "clicker" assembly on manual cars!
The "clicker" is the green device with the black top:
I hope Kite was able to help you but if not please send me a PM.
