    I will be removing my Secondary Air pump, can anyone advice me, or give me a stupid proof guide to the removal procedure?

    Am i right in saying i have got to remove this? And this is where the Forge blanking plate goes?

    Has this pipe got to be blanked off, or re-routed?
    [​IMG]



    The pipe above goes to here, and then goes up to another part of the engine. There is also another pipe which is blanked off on this unit, should it be?
    [​IMG]



    The pipe that comes out of the unit above then goes here. Is this to be blanked?

    Before anyone comments on the state of the pipes, they have now been changed, as these seem to be the cause of some of my problems.

    Because it has water dripping out of it, and it is registering a fault on Vag com.
    Seems cheaper to remove it..

    Thanks to everyone that sent me links to help me remove the SAI pump ect.. Did it today and it was a doddle.

    However! Even though the fault code is no longer poping up, the problem with the irratic boost is still there. And it has thrown up 2 different fault codes!

    Starting to pea me off now, and help would be greatfully appreciated.

    check out this link

    Will help you with the fault codes. had a quick look couldn't find some, maybe cause it is shareware version?
    try clearing them and then scan again to see what comes back up. you will be stuck with the SAI fault codes though.

    Since i have removed the SAI, i have noticed the revs take a while to settle after the car is rev'd. I thought it was because my DV was shagged, but i replaced it today with a Forge replacement, but the rev's are still un-settled.

    Any ideas on what may be causing this?

    I have checked vag com, but it is still only throwing up the SAI fault becuse i am not able to wipe fault codes.

    I need to clarify where this pipe is suppose to go, highlighted in red. At the moment this is just blanked off. Is it suppose to be connected elsewhere?

    That is the vacuum feed to the N112 SAI solenoid mounted on the plate under the intake manifold next to dipstick tube.

    Since you have removed your SAI then it should just be blanked off.

    is the SAI the thing that ends up chattering on cold idle?

    The chattering you are referring to sounds more like the evap solenoid. It is located on the charcoal canister next to power steering reservoir.

    thats suprising. well after a bit more reading, it seems the SAI only functions below a certain temp, the light chatter i get on startup some times i think is from my cam chain. im cleaning the oil pick up this weekend and ill see how that goes

    yes, the sai is supposed to operate on first startup, pumping fresh cold around from the airbox straight to the exhaust system, lowering emissions, once the cat reaches a certain temp it shuts off, seeing as the newer engines (amk & bam) dont have the sai i assume that audi realised it was a waste of time and removed it

    when i removed mine the pump was full of water and grit and grass, chucking a code, replaced the wiring plug with a resistor, no codes, simples

    for anyone wondering about how it affects emissions, i had my mot done a few weeks back, sailed through emissions no problems

    Ok, going to remove the SAI pump tomorrow, i've read numerous guides etc, but just want to be 100% sure what im doing.

    So remove the pump, do i have to fit a resistor? if so what spec?
    remove the combi valve, do i have to remove the coolant neck pipe in order to fit the blanking plate? or should i leave the metal pipe connected and blank it at the top by the rocker cover?

    do i leave the n112 valve not plummed in to anything at all?
    does the hose now run from the top of the dumpvalve straight to the inlet mani?

    anything else i should know about or watch out for? its an APY engine
    cheers

    Ok great!
    Ive got my forge blanking plate. So when fitting it,do i fit it at the top by the rocker cover (like the pic suggests at the top of this thread?) or fit it on the engine hole itself, and if the latter do i need to remove any coolant pipes, as ive seen this in some threads but not others

    RESISTOR:

    If anyone is interested, you need to fit a resistor in order to keep the fault codes away.

    You need a 10w 330ohm resistor, but these are a little hard to get hold of, but a 10w 470Ohm resistor from Maplins will work just as well. cost is 69p. The resistor is quite large, place the two ends of the resistor in the plug socket and then wrap in insulating tape.

    Previously mark_sarah

    The blank needs to go on the engine block, that is what its design for.
    Once I put the resisters in place, no more fault codes...
