    Boost Control Solenoids

    How much would it be for both the front and rear boost control solenoids, and to have them fitted in a garage? IS it a big job?

    Think mine need replacing. The boost is a bit dodgy!

    I just did the front BCS on mine and it was £26.28 from vauxhall for the part (they won't accept trade club yet) - it only takes a couple of mins to fit the front one so I would just do it yourself. It sits right beside the Actuator.

    Not sure on the back one though but I'm sure someone will advise soon enough.

    Back one is fiddly, but relatively easy to do DIY. Fitted mine in about 20 minutes (which included jacking the car).

    If you put the right value resistor in there you can remove it completely along with the vacuum box and lines etc...
