    Default Swirl bar, 3rd injector and EGR

    All fixed/replaced and cleaned.

    £13 for the loom from vauxhall, £1.20 for the washers from B&Q and nothing but time to clean the EGR, Spanner light and limp mode both gone.

    Total time = 2hrs

    I was a bit daunted by the swirl bar but in the end it took longer to get to B&Q's and back than it did to do it.

    The How 2's are brilliant.
