    I haven't got a picture but ill do my best to explain, where the inlet manifold is you've got the panel infront of it which the the dip stick clips into, well on the underside of that there is a solenoid on the right hand side. Theres a 3mm vac hose from the DV that goes into it, and one coming from it going to something to do with the turbo near the fpr (sorry for my vague knowledge).

    Part number is 037 906 283B. Reason i want to know the name of it is so i can enter it into my 'maintenance' spread sheet as ive just replaced it, but on the TPS invoice it just names it as a Solenoid....

    Thanks!

    Yep! I was replacing the silicon vacuum hoses and pulled one hose off and the nozzle came off! A previous owner had obviously broken it off and super glued it back on -_-. Bodgers!
