    Dear all, having got no further with my DPF nightmare (see separate thread), the garage has informed me that they think the swirl flaps are sticking and that may be the issue. They have freed them as well as they can but not replaced the assembly. As stated before, everything else has been...

    A couple of years ago i noticed the swirl flap connecting bar had fallen off and would not go back on as the ball tab had broken off the no.3 turret. So i turned them to the open position and it was fine but recently i have been getting the intake air leak detected fault code and a loss of boost...

    Hi Can anyone tell me or show me a diagram of where I can find the swirl flap actuator as the chuffing/temporary loss of power is making un-driveable at times. Also if I unplug the swirl flaps will it do any damage? Cheers Ken

    Ok so ive had a look and the swirl bar seems to be buggered. It moves side to side when gently revved no 1 and 2 are firmly attached however 3 is attached but lifts off freely and number 4 is not attached to anything. Around the number 4 is what appears to be some mastic or silicone rubbery...

    Quick Question - My Swirl Flaps have just snapped for the 2nd time in 4 years - go figure. And so I'm wondering - Do I..... a) Replace the inlet manifold AGAIN! at a cost of £170 and my time or b) Do what Ive been meaning to do for a while - i.e. Remove some of the guts from the DPF (as...

    For anyone who wants to remove the swirl flaps on their TTID pls see below. I did this on my 2008 TTiD last weekend, its on 84k, and well looked after. I think I got lucky... I found a partially broken flap on cylinder 1. Nearly half of it was missing, with the rest hanging on its post /...

    Hi, I have a 2007 1.9 TiD (150). Once or twice on a long run (or sometimes short run), the car will emit swirling clouds of blue/black smoke. There is no effect on performance, which is fine, and the smoke completely disappears if the engine is stopped and immediately restarted. This problem...

    Guys, I don't know if it's just me but I have been reading more and more bad reports about Problems with the swirl flaps/plates and I am wondering if I am panicking over nothing or do I need to panic? Im running a 2008 Ttid with 83000 on the clock. I love the car but I didn't realise this...

    Hi all whilst I was fitting a new battery, I started up the 1.9tdi engine I heard a rattle. Took the engine cover off and had a look, I saw down by the heater plugs a shinny kinked bar that had 4 round posts on it at equal spaces. I could see it had come off 4 posts with pins on which could be...

    Hello again all. Firstly, apologies for regurgitating old threads. Wasn't planning on requesting help again so soon after my EGR cooler pipe issue, alas, my engine seems to have developed a misfire / stutter. I initially thought the stutter was related to the egr cooler but that's now been...

    Great cars when they are working but some costly problems if they go wrong. Although the TiD's had swirl flap failures this does not AFAIK result in the destruction of the engine as it does with the TTiD......

    Hi all Just reading up on TTid's after buying a MY2010 (59 plate) sportwagon. After having issues with the swirl flaps on my previous 150 1.9 I was assuming the TTid would be more robust, but have since read of swirl flaps disintergrating and trashing TTid engines! From what I have read there...

    As part of solving what is going on with my car , I now want to establish if the swirl valves are operating correctly. According to WIS, "The purpose of the swirl throttle is to close the tumble duct at light engine loads, forcing all the air to take the longer swirl duct. This increases...
