    It is on the boost pipe coming up the front of the engine upto the manifold flap and EGR valve but it is almost impossible get at from above, it needs to be in the air with the lower cover removed. If you are trying to deal with an overboost issue it is unlikely to be that, what is the fault code are you fighting?

    That could be anything, guess work wastes money. Start with a code read.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Its nice to see you made an intro on your own.

    As said: You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

    Thanks Keith
    I do have a code reader.The car has only gone in limp mode once.I stopped the car/Started again and it was fine.checked the car with my code reader later that day- no fault codes detected.i guess I will have to carry code reader in glove box and wait for it to happen again. The car is in a fair standard for its age,and I plan to do my best to keep it that way.ther is somethings you may be able to help me with.
    1- Cambelt Intervals years/Milage
    2- OSR Rear door outer rubber window Seal. needs replacing.is it a case of just gently prising/levering it up.Thanks in advance ,Regards Darren

    If it went into limp mode your code reader is not picking up the error as it is only OBDII code suitable.
