    Changing inlet manifold tomorrow (Due to swirl flaps)

    When I bought my Signum I got it cheap due to needing the inlet manifold doing and the duel mass fly wheel.

    Doing the inlet manifold tomorrow so should drive loads better as of tomorrow afternoon

    Have you done one before ? As it may be more like Evening !! But as you say, it will drive & perform much better afterwards

    I have done loads of inlet manifolds but not on a 150 CDTi.

    Autodata says 5 hours so shouldn't be that hard.

    Will let you know how long it takes but the garage I work at is only open for 5 hours so I best get a move on lol.

    If you do it in 5 Hours or less you have done well .. Yes let us know & best of luck .. Be careful not to break the plastic connecting rod which sits in between the Actuator & the first swirl valve, especially if it's a cold day ( Nice & brittle ) A bit of warmth on it should help

    Cheers

    Well it didnt go quite to plan.

    Took just over 5 hours but noticed the fuel pump pully had a crack where the woodruff key goes when I was taking it off so need to get one ordered Monday.

    Going to get a timing belt kit (Inc water pump) and do that at the same time as the belt is going to be taken off.

    You still did well, I had heard about the odd one or Two having woodruff key issue's..

    Good move on the belt & pump change whilst it is all in bits ...

    All done and took another 3 hours to get it all finished off.

    So I now have piece of mind my cambelt, water pump, tensioners and inlet manifold are all replaced and genuine.
