Check your power steering fluid level as this will howl if level is low. I'm not sure about your model but if you can't find the reservoir, take the rh headlamp unit out and it will be under there.

Next step would be to check the wiring to the #4 injector.

when you put it like that lol!

800 quid for a clutch and DMF tho? I priced up sache parts to be about 300 plus labour, 10 hours seems a little on the taking the pee side


You may be right. The £800 was an "off the top of my head" quote from my trusted indy garage that I've used for years. I've just checked and a Sachs kit for the 2.0 TDCi will cost £395. Garage charges £53/per hour and I reckon it is a 3.5 hour job. so I would probably be looking at about £600 all in.

I assume the clutch slave cylinder is good? Might be worth checking the condition of your driveshaft gaiters while they are out.
