    Default Swirl flap repair kit, anyone tried these ?

    Hello all

    My swirl bar has fallen off. Now I know I have to at some point replace the inlet manifold because the bearings on the flaps have worn and that is the root of the problem. But whilst Im saving up the money for a new manifold and fitting costs I thought I might try these:

    Anyone tried them?

    If the rod comes off, it is because the manifold is heavily clogged up inside and is jamming, so that is just a temperary fix as with the quick fixes you can find on this forum.

    What would be best? blanking kit or just glue them and would the manifold need removing to fit a blanking kit? Found my bar completely off today small amount of gunk on no3 and quite a bit out of no4 cheers
