    Its next to the EGR (on the left as you look at it), it has a electric plug connected on top of it (it has a blue Bosch sticker on it) - its only held on by one torx screw and it pulls out - it has a small element inside, take care not to damage it - I just drowned mine with carb cleaner and allowed to dry, made a big difference to the smoothness of the power delivery.

    Cleaned mine 2 or 3 times now.
    I`ve used wynns carb cleaner and yes improved it, but to me, still wasn`t clean.
    So I used Bilberry safe wheel cleaner.Neat in a bucket or tub, left to soak, then scrubbed with a tooth brush, then put back in, then repeated.
    In the end looked like just bought a new one from vxl.
    So I recommend Bilberry Safe Wheel Cleaner,blows carb cleaner out the water.
