Hi im kevin this code relates to the trottlle pot rather than the pedal its located on air intake heres a pic .
Check connector on throttle pot for corrosion
These are very common to fail .can you freely move flap with fingers ? Remove flap and unbolt cover on electrical plug .check inside from any damaged teeth on cog or oil contamination
The flap moves fully from stop to stop when ignition turned on and off .it will set code straight away
Flap should move freely its not unusual for them to stick
It bolts onto where egr would be can you send be pic of engine as there are two possible variations
That will be why the delete pipe for egr has also removed throttle flap .it should look like picture
The only way to cure code is to get replacement parts .the trottle flap although we call it a throttle flap isnt one its a valve thats there to air shut down of engine and smooth ness of idle from vcold wont cause any real running issues
You should have no issues its a good engine not sure vag com is capable of this as it would need to be removed at a siftware level rather than just code .you would need a new map to remove from software
Please remember to rate my service
The egr is only vac operated and has likely already been written out of software as there are many maps for this
