    Also while faffing about with the EGR, I decided to remove the battery and check the drain grommets had been removed especially after it was in QRSport just before I bought it for water ingress. To my surprise, the bungs were still in situ.

    I couldn't fully remove this bung as there is a pipe running through it? Anyway, I manage to slide it up the pipe and wedge it place so it's no longer blocking the hole. You can just make it out in the pic.

    Although there was no water present when I removed the battery and the bungs were fairly clear & clear, probably been cleaned out by QRS recently.

    Along with the ECU box trapped wire I sorted couple of weeks ago, hopefully that will spell the end of any water ingress!

    How hard I'd it to get battery out pal, I got a battery to fit when I can be bothered and just wondered as there's an Allen bolt isn't there down the back?

    Whoops, think I removed the wrong one then.

    I couldn't be bothered to remove the battery so pushed out that big oval one. Was the only one I could see as it was getting dark, had the desired effect.

    It was a bit tricky but I used a 6mm allen key on a socket with an extension bar, 3/8ths. Hardest part was getting the bolt started when refitting it. Ended up using a long thin flat head screwdriver (big enough to fit in allen bolt and turn it) to get the bolt started. When I tried with the socket allen key it was wrong angle. I also had to unclip the ECU wire out of the way for access too.


    I noticed the large oval bung too but then spotted the rubber drain grommet under the plate. Not sure where that big oval hole leads to......
