    New accelerator pedal Z18XE - Tech 2?

    After another user posted up a query about fault codes concerning the throttle potentiometer I thought I should ask if a new pedal assembly needs to be set up via Tech 2?

    I purchased one about 6 months ago but have yet to fit it as the symptoms are not severe. However, I would like to get this done, and was wondering if someone could confirm?

    Unfortunately I dont have access to Tech 2 so havent been able to see if the existing pedal is worn out, but when I go over surfaces (such as anti-skid stuff on corners) the spanner and esp light would come on, and the pedal test showed up codes indicating that the reading from the pedal was something like 'not plausible' or 'out of range'.

    I was worried if I just boshed the new pedal on that the ECU would say no and I'd end up being effectively stranded lol

    pedal can be fitted without the need for tech 2, it is the 'z' series throttle bodies that need to be tech 2 setup with running parameters
