    Recirc valve - nightmare

    If i'd had known how tight the recirc valve was to get to, i might not ave bothered with the dump valve

    Still got there in the end, fittted the spacer, but still not sure that ive tightened one of the screws up tight enough to stop any boost leeking away.

    Thanks to legoman for the spacer, yes it has been a mission, goin to halfords tommorow to get a ball ended allen key

    I managed to do it with a long thin screw driver! I don't think the bolts need to be that tight anyway. Mine were only just over finger tight when I did mine.

    You have to cut down an Allen key. I have one already done, if you want to borrow it, bit too late now by the sounds of things ops: ops:
