    remove the black plastic cover on the front of the engine, then remove the air intake hose...clean up that butterfly valve you see with carb cleaner till it's lovely and shiney....

    The 2.0T doesn't have an idle valve as such, it uses the stepper motor to control the idle via that butterfly..

    Got car back from vauxhall today said they put new coil pack on and changed spark plugs. Seems to be idling fine now . They never gave me a note of work carried out, so when i asked for one they said they dont normally give out a copy because the work was done through warranty ,but because i asked they said they would send out a copy..

    If you ask nicely they will do you a print out of all work done on the car from new, as long as the work is done in a VX dealer everything in on there including services, job numbers and costs are also on there.
