    I have always left the vacuum pump on, then its still working but not pulling the flaps. I personally have done it this way and not removed it or blanked off the pipe...

    I seem to recall that this method was/is used at PMW, one of the first indys offering deflapping & using their own manufactured blanks.
    Most just reassemble the actuator arm and let it freewheel.

    It's a P0401 error, as detailed in the swirl valve removal guide I attached yesterday.

    I attempted it today but aborted, I had a nightmare trying to get the rear engine cover out and ending up breaking it !!!

    I'll try again tomorrow.

    Also - the fookin EGR valve won't come off from the metal pipe on the left hand side ! anyone know how to do this, the jubilee clip looks like it is permanently ixed onto it ????

    I can only assume that this is because the vacuum pump has been removed, did you remove yours?

    If you remove the bottom part of the Microfilter housing,
    [item 3 in the diagram] you'll find the rear engine cover comes out much easier.

    IIRC its spot welded in place, I had the same problem with mine but I cleaned it in situ, see http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...943/page2.html
