    Good job mate what was the mileage on the car, is that the first time it's been done and did you have EML on? Just wondering what mine is like at 56k and as far as I know it's not been done but I haven't had any problems or any EML's

    No problems on mine really, i think it was so clogged up it didnt do anything :P
    I just disconnected mine now so should never have to clean it again. Cant believe they make it so simple to just disco the vacuum hose.

    It wasn't giving any problems & no spanner light, but it's a job I've been meaning to do since fitting a new crankshaft sensor.....I've had the car 2 years, so don't know it's previous history, but the mileage is 155.000.......next job is to fit a replacement turbo....should be fun......lol
