Re: lambda sensor

unfortunately on my model the 1.8, the engine management light comes on as amber and says in the manual that it is the lambda sensor.
I have had this verified by having the code read at the garage and it does back up the manuals statement that the fault is with the lambda sensor

Has anyone changed one and if so do you recommend sticking w...

accelerator pedal sticking

Hello all, I have a 2000 Z3 1.8 and when I press the accelerator pedal, the firsty10mm or so are very stiff leading to a jerking action when accelerating.
Past the first 10mm or so it is perfectly smooth.
Any advice on either a simple ,quick or permanent fix.
cheers
