Check the intake manifold flap valve N316 with Guided Fault Finding. If the flap valve is faulty, replace it with P/N 06H 906 283 B. This new valve has an additional connection for the fresh air line. 

Install fresh air line P/N 06H 133 583 F by first routing it along the cylinder head cover, then securing it with the included clip on the high-pressure fuel line and activated charcoal filter cable. 

On in-line engines, loosen the securing bolt for engine wiring between the second and third cylinder and secure the fresh airline with a bolt.

On transverse engines, the M6 x 14 bolt with P/N N107 732 01 (thread cutting) must be used in addition. Tighten the bolt to 9 Nm, +/- 1 Nm. 

When routing the clean air line to the intake manifold flap valve, ensure that the clean air line is routed between the cylinder head cover and the vacuum unit lever for the intake manifold flap

Route the fresh air line along the cylinder head cover and secure with clips on the high pressure fuel line and charcoal filter cable.
