  • Had a side light fail so thought I'd try LED replacements and change the cover screws to s/s while I was at it. All arrived today and fitted, although the LED lights are longer so it's a tight fit. All for the princely sum of £3.06.

    Removed this today, looks pretty clean, a little soot but no gunge. Gave it a flush with EGR spray and all looks OK. When I turn the ignition to position 2 it clicks continuously and the plunger vibrates in a slightly open position. Ignition off and it strokes closed and then returns to the slightly open position. Is this normal behaviour?

    Thanks John, I checked the cable this evening and appears smooth, but the pedal seemed a bit stiff, so I'll strip it tomorrow.

    I've also developed a stutter when decelerating when the engine is warm which I don't think is related and is possibly a dirty IACV ( the ticking from what I understand is the IACV when I turn the ignition on is going on longer than usual I think) I'm going to clean that too.

    So, checked this evening and my throttle body is actually alloy, so is it likely to be repairable to stop it sticking when it gets hot?

    My throttle becomes sticky after a period at higher speed ( an hour or so at around 75mph), more noticeable in the summer during hot weather . I assume this is the throttle butterfly bearings getting tight when it gets hot. Being a late 2004 TF 116 I assume it will have a plastic 48mm throttle. I see Rimmer have alloy 52mm throttle bodies for £36 , would these fit OK, and would I have to get the car returned or adjusted?
