Variator Solenoid Dissected

version "2" of the variator solenoid butchered, for all you alfa nerds to see. part no. 71736025

if you get a p1653 fault code with "high signal" on a twin spark and you got this version of the solenoid, then is probably faulty, and it's not repairable.

just couldn't dismantle the black cylinder, where actually the solenoid is.

version "1" repair guide coming soon...

that's the phase variator, not the variator solenoid (aka variator actuator or variator control valve). the variator solenoid engages the phase variator.
