    As far as i'm aware the swirl flap assembly has never been self fixed on the 2.2. It has however on the 1.9CDTi, might be worth having a look in the how 2 for some inspiration. They do fail on the direct but not as common as the CDTi. Your best bet is just to get a new or newish manifold, not cheep for a new one mind.

    If its just the actuator you can just swap them over and keep the same manifold i'm sure.

    Swirl flaps are part of manifold.

    Just had the same problem with my 2.2 Direct, engine management light on with code P01112.
    Swirl flaps at fault, the cure a new manifold at a cost of £600.00 plus vat for parts alone.

    Luckily mine was covered by warranty
