1-2-1-6 - throttle valve sensor.

no idea what it is I'm afraid!! JB will sort this wink

However, as its a sensor it'll probably have to be replaced.

Just had a thought, is this the "throttle position sensor" I've heard about? Can cause rough running, straight replacement I'm afraid.

the 156 systen is very different to the 155...there are some known problems with the sensor motor on the throttle pedal...but you can take off the main inletpipe into the plenum chamber and clean out all the crud,it can build up so it actually holds open the throttle slightly.
