    Default can your swirl bar be fitted either way ?

    have noticed tonight that the swirl bar has come off all the valves !!

    The third cup has snapped so it wont sit on the drive valve when it moves.

    I have turned the bar 180 degrees and clipped it on the nipples so that the broken cup is now on valve 2.

    will this work properly now till i can get a fix for it or is there only one way to have the bar on the valves ??


    Do the valves turn 360 degress or just move back and forth ?

    cheers

    Valve 3 is the one that moves and the bar moves the rest so if it's not connected to number 3 then it's not doing anything

    Sorry just read your post properly
    He bar is designed to only go on one way but as long as you have reasonable clearance all round and free movement I don't see it being to much of a problem

    just had a quote for new inlet manifold, actuator, sensor,timing belt,

    £ 800 all in.

    said he couldnt give me a warranty for the work without carrying out all the other work.

    Only had the timing belt done last year and i paid about £ 250 for that on its own !

    wish i knew then that it needed doing.

    Think the actual labour is around £ 150 + VAT, he quoted £230 for manifold, £ 170 for actuator, £ 75 for sensor, forgot what he said for the timing belt, total was £ 660 + VAT.
