    1.7 DTI pump ECU repair 'how to' with photos

    Ok so I have written a 'how to' with some photos as a PDF it is available on the following link
    (since I couldnt attach it directly to the forum I have appended it on my own website)
    one click and it opens as a PDF which you can save and print for prosperity!

    Thanks

    good guide. vacuum hose note a very valid point. Only 1 small picky point, the retaining bolts are M6 not 10mm (use a 10mm spanner)

    Slight problem

    Thanks for the reply I've removed the ecu like you said but it looks like its all ok I had a diesel leak so I was told my problem could of been this as I had no turbo boost although the turbo was spinning fine and I had pressure but on removal of the ecu the connecting block and ecu was soaked in diesel do you know if this could be my problem??????? Thanks again

    Should be put sticky, is a good one.

    Just a note! failures can be also prevented of the ecu by following this how-to. That means avoiding remaining stranded somewhere far away from home, with no chance of repair on site. So if You now is been there for a while worth at least a check, remove check if it looks OK seal back, fit back and peace of mind. Takes 30min to 1 hour tops.

    PS: Discovered some leaks behind the engine doing this. Usually a place I do not have any reason to check.

    The Spawntohell link is giving me a long list of How To's, it's not at all obvious to me what you are referring to. OTOH the ian5 pdf is brilliant, just repaired an identical fault on my pump ECU, just waiting for the sealant to cure to find out if it has fixed the problem.

    The excellent instructions persuaded me to look at this first, instead of changing the crank sensor or changing the engine ECU as my two most trusted advisors suggested. I had *exactly* the same failed solder joint, and this seems to have cured the problem. I found I needed to go in from above and below, particularly to release the socket clip. To remove the back panel, I kept scoring with a Stanley knife until no more silicone came out, but found I could not prise the plate out with the knife blade: kept snapping. I found I was able to lift it enough with a wood chisel to get a thin screwdriver in, then it was easy. Can't thank ian5 enough.
