Hi all.
I've got a friend with a 159 1.9 diesel, and he is about to take of his manifold, to clean it.
In the proces he wants to remove the swirl flaps, but since his manifold is the type that has 2 parts, 1 in plastik, I think, we can't find any kit for this.
Can someone point me in the right direction please?
Something like this: Intake parts : Swirl flaps removal kit
Thanks in advance

No need for a kit. After the swirl flaps and spindles were removed I used an M6 tap on the spindle holes and loctited button-headed bolts in there, after cutting them to sit flush with the inlet tract. 18mm IIRC. Works fine, is easy, and they aren't going anywhere under the lower plastic cover. Else get them welded up.
