I just want my car back for the heated seats, it's been bloody cold this week LOL LOL


It doesn't need changing, it needs to be disconnected. It only needs changing if, after disconnection mod, the pressure at 2000 rpm with engine warm is lesser than 2.1 bars. Otherwise it remains there, obviously disconnected.

I tried to explain this to the service desk but it was like talking to a wall.

If the oil pressure test is below the value given the solenoid NEEDS replacement.

If it is above the value just the wiring part needs to be done.

If they are saying the solenoid is needed the oil pressure must have been below the required minimum and that's why they are keeping the car

They told me they had the part on order before the car even went in.

It could well be that the technicians have it all in hand and the service desk just don't have the info Smile
