    Since a couple of weeks I am facing problems with my idling speed. It sometimes stays up at 1250rpm and only after releasing the break pedal, it falls down to 750 to 800rpm. Every now and then, the idling speed goes up to a maximum of 3000rpm without any interference. I also notice, that the between shifting gears, the engine rpm does not fall back to minimum quick enough.
    According to the service station, the accelerator potentiometer (Part # SLD100061) is faulty and gives the wrong output voltage. However, I took the Bosch Potentiometer apart and checked all the contacts but could not discover any wear out or other abnormalities.

    Due to the enormous price of the part (approx. AUD 1,200 without labour), I am very reluctant to change it before having checked all the other possibilities.

    Did anyone experience similar problems with her/his Freely?

    Thanks for your comments and best regards from down under
