    Default Update

    Took it tothe staeler i bought it from.After being told the exhauust was fine i then took it to a local exhaust centre(of the stealers choice0 who promptly said both back boxs were breaking up!..Genuine Vauxhall only parts came in at £555.00 for two back boxes!
    Needless to say the stealer said 'aint under warrenty'.So off to my trusty tyre/exhaust centre i go.£300.00 later i gota brand new,custom made stainless cat back system purring away on ma car!!
    When i took the car to the stealers ,after watching the mechanic complete thte fault code reading process, no faults were stored. Hmmmm..maybe taking out the BSR remap n re-installing the original cleared the codes(thanks Justin at BSR UK).
    After the 2nd reset in 5 miles..spanner light comes on again,twice..
    Back to the stealer who tells me its the 'service light'..
    ERR NO!!
    And back to the mechanic i go on friday..
    Question:how easy is it to check the vacum pies from /to the dump valve?
    Question;Should this topic actually be in this section?

    remove the front plastic over.. you'll see the vacumn tubing and it's connectors under there, follow them back to the turbo....
