DIY: Volkswagen MKIV TDI PD BEW Anti Shudder Valve Removal

Video tutorial on how to remove the anti shudder valve (asv) on a VW Golf, Jetta, Bora, MK4 TDI PD BEW engine. Some other models that came equipped with a PD100 included some Skoda models, Audi models, and VW Passat. After a while of operation, the anti shudder valve does build up with dirt and debris which does need to be cleaned. Anti shudder valves can also malfunction over time either getting stuck open or closed, therefore not allowing the engine to start. The original function of the unit shudder valve is to prevent a “run-away diesel” and to allow for quieter engine shutdowns. This particular tutorial was done on a 2004 Volkswagen Golf TDI.
