    Couple of ??

    Couple of ??

    1, While cleaning my EGR and Map sensor, I noticed that the swirlflap linkage bar connecting each flap together had come off no's 1,2 & 4. Checked movement of all flaps and they all move freely I don't know how long its been like this as I've not noticed any power loss or fault codes/lights.
    My concern is should the linkage bar be a tight fit on top of each flap joint.

    2, I've recently noticed that when dipping the clutch I get a slight rattling, there is no noice with foot off clutch. It almost sounds like a dry release bearing but have read that when the flywheel starts to play up you get a similar noice.
    Tha car has covered 93000 and as far as i know is on its original clutch

    swirl bar falling off is common .. but only replaceable with a new inlet manifold according to vauxhall £800 ish.

    thier are various alternative diy solutions though.

    First up is get some screw cap covers from wilkinsons and glues these onto the bottom of each socket.

    the second tested method is some 3/8" tap washers from B&Q same as above glue onto bottom of sockets and refitt.

    The 3rd option is call vauxhall customer care tell them about thier faulty designed inlet manifauld and you not happy with paying £800 for thier design fault and as such you expect them to pay for the majority of the repair as this should have been a recall. (the new inlet manifauld is a different design ;-) )


    if your lucky they will help if not saddly your stuck with buy a new one yourself.
