    Could this be causing no boost?

    Hi All, went for a drive this morning and noticed my boost gauge was only reaching 5 psi obviously I started panicking immediately! Looked under the bonnet and found this! Am I right in saying that those wires are going to the N75 valve? Also has anyone ever seen this happen before? should I replace the whole loom or just bodge it back together? 20130531_153435[1].jpg

    Yes, this is why you have no boost... fairly common problem too... plugs are available (inexpensively) from a dealer/TPS... they do repair kits IIRC or you could try taking the plug apart and solder it back on...

    Not sure off hand... never done it personally but there is a part number on the plug so you could start from there....

    do those fit the N75? As the N75 plug has a different metal spring clip. Its almost like it has wings on the sides.

    I bought these ebay ones for a boat gearbox solenoid a few months back.

    i asked at audi and they said such thing wasn't available. my bro bought a a3 with low boost for silly money, i scanned it prior to buying it and quickly found the same problem, and obviously didnt inform the seller till it was signed over lol

    so we got two mini blade terminals and slid them on the connectors and then put a dab of hot glue inside to keep them still. been working last 3 months now. but ill pm you tuffty. to find out how to get one,
