    TPS is around £30 iirc

    Best way of doing it is by removing the airbox followed by the Puck valve then you should have enough room/movement in the intake pipe to remove the N75 valve, whrn i swapped mine out i pulled the pipes off the turbo/wastegate then swapped them to the new one of the car, make a note which pipe goes where before you remove it.

    something about to remove it you cut the pipe.

    The problem i have is i can't find a diy i have ordered a Haynes manual, but don't want to start and not finish. but if you say i should be able to take it off and put it back on i will give it a shot. cheers

    I have got to the part how do you remove the metal clips

    Just pull the pipes whilst rotating then and they should work free.

    you make it sound so easy consireing the space and how tight they are clamped it is impossible. i am going to buy a clip untightener

    edit now off what an **** and i have nicked one of the pipes so will wait for a new one to fit. thanks for the assistance.

    Have you checked the wiring? Especially around where the wires enter the plug?

    yes it looks good. the problem is it is made out it is easy to replace when in reality it is a pita. I haveb worked on french cars and they are easier to work on then audi. I could spend forever trying to fix it so selling it at a loss, just want rid when i read up it could be loads of different things.

    Assuming its brand new its unlikely to be faulty.

    Its probably broken wires in the cable leading to it, i've had that before. No damage was visible. I cut about 8 inches off the cable and spliced in 8" of new wires and a new connector.

    TBH I might have knicked the pipe on the right hand side, could this cause issues. Also is the n75 always related to the valve, could it be elsewhere?

    Depends on the exact fault code, but if its saying the valve is open circuit, then its the valve or the wiring.

    got it booked into a garage to have a look and hopefully fix problem, i hope ir isn't critical, the turbo does seem to whine a bit, but i have been looking at k04-015 in case.

    you have a fault code for N75 open circuit.

    Thats not caused by a siezed dump valve, its caused by an open circuit on the N75. That can only be caused by two things. 1) a broken N75. 2) broken wiring.

    Dump valve is cheap and easy to replace, they're about £25 from the dealer (get the TT225 version as its stronger) But i doubt thats whats wrong here.
