    Right, I've managed to disconnect all the cables to the engine. But its the auto tranmission thats proving a problem. I could only get a loom for a manual, I thought i'd just transplant the auto wiring from old to new. It turns out this aint possible, so i'm gonna try and get an auto loom and the old mechanic that charged my £1600 said he would do it.

    I'll let you know how i get on

    Glad to hear you are getting somewhere, you could try our forum vendors Quarry motors for a engine loom, they also offer a discount to members .

    Seeing as it was repeatedly coming up with camshaft sensor fault codes it had to be a wiring problem, I am surprised the garage didn't get a auto electrician in to look at it,

    Good luck with the fix,

    Yeah I called Quarry motors, they said they would call me back. Hopefully be able to find one soon. If anyone comes across an m43 1.8 auto engine harness then please let me know. Cheers
