    Swirl Motor Resistor Mod OM642

    Hi, has anyone fitted a 4.7k Ohm resistor to their inlet port shutoff motor comnection, it fools the ECU into thinking its working ok when it fails, so instead of replacing the motor for £££ you jus add a resistor for 5p :) When the motor fails the flap defaults to its normal position which...
