    Default Maybe a Common Topic BuT I Need Help... Swirl Flap NoN Movement

    Lately I have been noticing some loss of power in my vectra cdti elite 150.


    I checked the swirl flap today, had some one press on the loud pedeal & the swirl flap didnt move( the engine was warm & tried with cold) I cant see the swirl flap to broken or snapped what I did notice was out of the 4 rubber mounts it goes over 3 of them had these clips facing upwards like they needed to be fixed into place via the swirl flaps, is this a problem or are they like that? On a second occasion the 3rd swirl flap mount spun and then stopped is there a problem occuring?

    also is the a clear and step by step guide to cleaning cdti throttle body from removing to cleaning?

    Thanks in advance

    Is the bar in place?

    flap 3 is operated by the actuator underneath... 1, 2 & 4 are operated by the bar which is attatched to all 4 from the top.

    I have removed the bar & bonded 1, 2 & 4 in the open position leaving 3 to move as it should by the actuator... car is imo much better for it
