Car was in today having a new solenoid fitted. My mechanic checked out the plastic chain guides/slippers. He says they're in pretty good condition with only light wear visible on them.......which is surprising for 132k miles. He's got some other jobs to do on it so I'm hoping he'll have everything done by end of play tomorrow. Missing it already and I've only gone a day without it.

They may have been done for all I know but I have no documented evidence of it. Might have a Hartech rebuild for all I know. The previous owner did live in Bolton and never saved any paperwork in his ownership. Dont know Grin

I'm confused. My old bank 1 solenoid is black. My new solenoid isn't black. Do Porsche still colour code them or just leave them plain now?

Have you asked Hartech themselves? I know the paperwork from way back was a lot slimmer than they give today, but they may have records of the plate as passing through their hands..
