    OE Dumpvalve Replacable?

    Hey guys/gals....is the OE Recirc Dumpvalve replacable for a new one from vauxhall?
    Found out the turbo was chattering earlier on at revs up to 3000rpm, if the car was accelerating heavy and you let off at near enough 4500rpm or so it would dump.
    But otherwise it seems to stick, had to put the knaf baileys dv26 on to stop the chatter and compressor surge.
    Basically the spring/diaphragm has gone weak and opens far too easy, not enough to cause EML lights...but some rough running.
    Far better imo than ferking the turbo up while i can get it sorted.

    So can anyone tell me if its possible to oil/replace the OE Recirc DV?

    Hmmmm, being searching through the Forum.
    Not having any luck.....its getting me to the point where its doing my nut in.
    Sorted gear selection, now the bloody OE DV has gone.
    Got the Baileys on, seems to be fine at the moment....but the noise gets on my wick now.
