    Default Swirl Bar help please

    Been reading all the swirl bar posts that are on here and it is all to clear that it is a common problem.

    My situation is that the swirl bar is completely off, so I have removed it.
    There is alot of gunk down near the vavles so I will be looking to clean when I get chance.

    Number 3 which I know is driven by the motor only moves slightly to the left (12 o'clock to 11 o'clock position) when rev'ed.

    Does this mean the motor is fooked?

    Is it worth putting the bar back on or leaving it as it is?

    Car is under independent garage warranty, so I will be having a word.

    Cheers

    Disconnect the motor from flap 3, clean up all the crap around the valves, and glue them all open at the 10 o'clock position


    Edit >>> Try and claim on warranty for new manifold first
