    Engine light came on on my 55 plate 58K Signum 1.9 Cdti. I thought it would be the EGR valve but when I opened the bonnet the swirl valve bar is on its side.

    Do you have a link to the repair please?

    Best regards,
    Providing its the 150bp on the actuator itself is a little plastic link rod which connects to the underside of the inlet manifold which then turns valve no3. Best access to it is to remove the oil seperator and vaccum box although removing EGR/Throttle body will improve access.... There is a how2 on here showing a complete replacement of the manifold if you want to look with pics...
