I have an intermittent warning light which I have had checked out by a Vauxhall garage.It is the sensor ontop of the exhaust manifold which they say is sooted/carbon'd up and the butterfly vent isn't working properly. They say the sensor cannot be changed on its own, must have the maifold changed as well!!!!!!Expensive solution.Is it possible just to change the sensor or are there any other methods/solutions to prevent the warning light from activating.

Many Thanks

Jezza

are you talking about oxygen sensor?if so then its sometimes the case where the sensors become siezed in the manifold and can rip the thread out when removed,this is due to excess heat build up,give the sensor a spray with wd40 and leave to soak,this may free it off

What I am asking is, does the manifold have to be part of the change or is it possible just to change the sensor. Vauxhall are saying I can't just change the sensor it has to be sensor and manifold £500 plus fitting costs. Anyone had the same experience or knows that Vauxhall are just trying it on?

Thanks

can you confirm what sensor it is exactly,if it is oxygen sensor then you may need manifold and sensor if you have tried what i suggested previously,if it aint oxygen sensor then which one is it?
