Cheers Trevor, have a look tomorrow and let u know. Much appreciated. Car rear parking sensors don't work been told it's faulty control module, is there anyone who does these for less than a mortgage lol

IT WOULD BE BEST TO LOOK ON EBAY FOR MODULE

BUT WHAT MAKES THEM SURE IT IS THAT IT COULD BE JUST A SENSOR

Garage I bought it from said that but they dragged it out until warranty expired so don't trust them now, do u think putting it on machine would be best idea?

When you first turn the ignition on there is a high pitched tone that lasts for a few seconds if that helps?

Looks ok but will get mate to have look when he gets off honeymoon. Thought about seeing if there were any owners near me who would give it the once over, might just be me as not had diesel car before ?

That doesn't sound too expensive? You can replace the hoses and blank off the EGR.

Turbo whining too though, place I got it from said they will repair it so might not be all bad?
