    it is a pain in the back side to get it out but it will come out. i took mine out a few months ago i ended up taking all the wire harness clips and clamps off the loom to be able to move the look out the way to make it easier to remove the ABS ecu.

    Hmmm does not sound good. So you got a known working throttle body from Mo. Fitted this, the TPS started to work, and now it is not working again. Then the immobiliser kicked in and you can't start the car. Is that right?

    Which sensor where you adjusting. The TPS on the back of the throttle body or the aps on the front of the throttle body. Least I think it is that way round the one with the idle switch is the 4 wire sensor. It will be good to see if the throttle fixed you issue. It will make you happy to get you far back up and running.

    It is still pointing to the tps not being adjusted correctly. Probably not seeing the idle position of the TPS correctly. When the TPS is closed the idle position out should be active. And as soon as you crack the throttle open slightly the idle position out should deactivate. This is what you are setting up with the feeler gauge. As your car is an auto you have an TPS (throttle position sensor) and an APS (accelerator position sensor). Both of which have to be setup correctly.

    what difference does it make driving forwards or backwards? the throttle opens the same way and the TPS works in the same way if you are going backward or forwards the only part that makes the car go in a different direction is the Gerabox. are you saying there is something working with the gear box which does not allow it to go forwards.

    I might be able to come up at some point to have a look, but i have a sticking rear calliper at the moment so i will have to sort that out first. do you have off road parking or a garage that the car can be put in. this would maximise the opportunity for me to pop up and take a look one evening. depending if the wire break can be found or not, it might be easier to replace the wire from the ecu to the TPS sensor, but that means getting to the back the centre consul area to get to the...

    when you testing the wiring are you checking %v to battery ground/chassis gnd or are you check to sensor gnd. if you check to battery gnd and 5 V ok then check to the sensor Gnd and 5v is not at the connector you know there is an issue with the sensor gnd.but if you still get the 5V present then the sensor ground wire should be OK. and it can only be one of the other 2wires. for the next bit you need to know the control type on the TPS sensor. Then back probe the sensor connector wires...

    some nice tips and tricks on installing a twin plate clutch and a manual gearbox. i will have to check to see if there is lift point on the VR4 gear selector area as i have not noticed one before but hanging the gear box on the chain would be so much easier than lifting the gear box on the jack/lift. i know Nick mann does it with a strap around the gearbox to lift it. but if there was a hook/lift point then this could be usful.
