Let Google(chrome) translate do the job for you, that's how I do it  ;)

And some of the sellers, they do understand English.

Mostly, If I need something, I send an email in Polish, German and English, saying I want that particular part, and you ask for a 'total' price, including shipping

And than....I await.....

It's a Polish website, similar to ebay, prices in Zloty


1 Zloty = 0.178155 £ (currently)

Prices ex shipment


I would say, give it a try

Do me a favor and get the turbo hose (hose filter box -> turbo) from the turbocharger. Now you see vanes.If you can spin them around, your turbo = ok and the actuator is probably dead.

In the other case, other charger and actuator = ok (99%)

Now, it is your car, I have nothing to say about it, but it is not necessary to buy both items, but , if you wonna feel "safe", it is the best option....

In the other case:





the last one is my favorite :)


and many others

Are you sure that your actuator is malfunctioning? 

If that is the case, you can buy any other actuator (= P&P)

If you need another turbo and your actuator is in good condition, you can still use it.

In Topic: Fault Codes

I had it once, and in my case it was the hose INTERCOOLER -> EGR, but it might also be the other: TURBO -> INTERCOOLER.

Where the speed-sensor is located, that, I do not know :(


Also this:

"P132B is a code related to the calibration from the recall 06E17. It means that there is a problem with the VGT system. P132B is a fault code that is set if the required boost levels are not achieved during a learn cycle or at specific speed fuel demand points. This code indicates that there are issues with the turbocharger, MAF sensor, MAP sensor/hose, IAT2 sensor, intake leaks, or exhaust leaks, etc."

Start with cleaning MAP and and IAT2 sendors, and check all the CAC boots for leaks.

"A solution MAY be as simple as performing the VGT relearn process, or it could be related to the above possibilities. I would suggest to try cleaning the IAT2 and the MAF sensor (w/ MAF sensor cleaner, not carb cleaner)"


As you see,it can vary....


Meanwhile, I have done some searching after the speed sensor....

Only the PFL has the 'real' VSS, located on the gearbox, on  the FL & FFL, this sensor is removed and his 'function' 

has been taken over by the ABS sensors. They send a signal to the ABS pump, which converts the signal into a CANBUS signal....
