    Default boost control solenoid

    guys

    still got the problem with the P0234 error

    have done a few checks on things

    was looking at boost pipes today ,and when i removed the one from the solenoid there was some crud in the pipe

    my question is


    can i clean out the solenoid with some carb cleaner ,just in case its blocked .

    or will it screw it up ?

    You would be better just buying a new unit they only cost about £11 from the dealers

    So would be good to know if it's YOUR pipe causing the issues or the boost control solenoid ... Might be worth asking Paul IF he resolved the boost issues and what size pipe he fitted
