    Default Boost Sensor Hex bolt Q

    Hi Guys,

    I've been trying to get the boost sensor out to clean it properly but the Hex bolt is rounded out and an allen key won't do it anymore, Any ideas? Ive tried using a spanner and pliers at it but no joy. All I can thing now is to to cut across the top of the bolt and try to use a flat head to turn it. I have the 1.9 tdi 150 engine. I recently replaced the EGR with a new one but i can't the bolt for the boost sensor out to clean it.

    Any ideas? Wild n wacky all considered I just want my car back to herself.

    Cheers,
    R

    The fittign is a torx fitting you need torx bits to remove it, Your probably best off using mole grips on the head if you can get a grip of it and replacing with a new bolt.

    Righteo, I started the car up today and it was idling like a dog, all rough and juttering so I checked the injectors and when I pushed the 2nd one from the right hand side in the cars idling went very smooth. So i decided to bring it for a spin and it went like a bullet but then about 2 miles later when into limp mode again and was juttering and idling lumpy. So I popped the hood and pushed the plug on the injector again and the cars idling went fine again and it took of like a bullet again. Is this Injector number 3 that people talk about? And how much would it cost a garage to fix? I know theres a kit to do it myself but I don't feel comfortable doing it!

    Thanks all,
    R

    Thanks for that guys. I'll take a look at it when I get home tonight and see if I can hold it in someway. I've contacted garages for a price so just waiting for them to get back to me.
    Thanks for all your help.
