My engine is in limp mode and would like to lock the swirl flaps. I have read about disconnecting the balljoint from the actuator arm. However it looks like that this is different for a 1.9 jtdm 16v. I cannot find this balljoint. All subjects are for the 2.4 engines. Is it possible to lock swirl flaps on a 1.9 engine?

I suspect you have the plastic manifold which uses an internal arm and gear mechanism.

Safest thing with those is remove the flaps as they break and get ingested.

As for the limp mode you need to get it plugged in and have codes read to see what’s causing the limp mode
