    Y17dt Boost Pressure Solenoid

    The EML has lit up on my 1.7Di, had the codes read and it is a problem with the boost pressure solenoid, cleared it and it keeps coming back, but, i havent a clue what the boost pressure solenoid looks like, where it is, or how to replace it.

    The same thing happened on my brothers van and VX sold him a MAP Sensor, but i am not totally convinced it was the correct part, a description, picture or diagram would be great.

    Any help would be massively appreciated, thanks, Callum

    That's the egr solenoid, the boost solenoid is underneath the edu, below the pump.

    The egr and boost solenoid are interchangeable, so you can swap it over.

    Are they the same parts & fitments?

    Slightly different angle on the nipples, but to just swap and test it'll be fine.

    Cheers, also can you point me in the right direction to find the MAP sensor? I know the barometer type sensor that is the same, but where is the actual MAP sensor located?

    It's Under the white part of the egr solenoid, undo the 2 x 10mm bolts, move it out of the way, undo the 10mm bolt holding down the map sensor and wiggle the sensor up and outwards, be careful, it's a bit delicate.
