    Default Replacement of SWIRLS/intake-manifold on warranty....

    My Veccy 2006 CDTI 150 is going in to the dealer for a replacement of the intake-manifold due to leakage around the swirl-valves on top of the manifold. They will do the replacement on warranty.
    But, they claim that they do not need to change the actuator/motor that operates the SWIRL-valves since it is probably not defective....
    Does anybody know if it is required to change this actuator/motor with the replacement of the intake? Is it hard/expensive to replace the actuator/motor later if it is defective?
    Any known service-bulletins, etc on this issue?

    It's recommended by the manufacturer of the inlet to replace the motor.

    Print that out and slap them round the face with it.

    Yes, this must be changed too, as it "learns" how to operate with the manifold to which its attached - it cannot re-learn to another manifold and must be replaced too.

    Excellent, thank you guys!!!!
    I did an electronic-slap in their face just now by sending it on email and they suddenly had no excuses for not ordering that module and plan the replacement along with the inlet. -I'll verify it again by calling them some days before the planned replacement of the manifold.

    Thanx again.

    vauxhall do not recomend it is replaced but its values reset??, however as said prior the manufacturers do recomend it, i have been told by vx that its an easy job to do all together but a pig to replace on its own afterwards! push them for the whole job and check afterwards or during replacement!.

    Did you get the EML coming on or are they replacing it purely on the leakage?

    I discovered the leakage on top and of course the dealer responded by having a technician just clean up the mess and say that all is normal and fine...
    After a discussion, the dealer agreed that a leakage on the intake would probably give me lower pressure and then a weaker accleration/poor performance, so they accepted to change the intake.
    -Now after the help from _ZS_ and Dan_BlackSRi I got them to replace the actuator as well.
    No EML has light up yet. (but the car did have an historical fault code regarding the intake, but it was disregarded as a "glitch" from the dealer....)

    yeah that's why I was asking because a lot of the time stealers seem to work to "no fault code/EML = no repair". Glad you're getting it sorted. Expensive outside of warranty!

    And due to excellent forums like this we can push the stealers to actually provide the service they are supposed to do.
