    Insignia 2.0 Petrol turbo waste-gate solenoid.

    Forum Key Rings
    Hi everyone!

    New here and first time posting on the forum, so please forgive me if I have posted this in the wrong place.

    I have a petrol 2.0 turbo VX line 4x4 Nav Insignia. When accelerating i have little power and the turbo is not kicking in. I plugged in the trusty diagnostic machine and it tells me the Waste-gate solenoid is the problem. I have spent a while under the bonnet and can't for the life of me find it! No amount of googling yields an answer either. Every website points me towards the location where it would be on the diesel model.

    Please can you fine fellows enlighten me as to the location of the Waste-gate solenoid on the petrol engine? Also, is it an easy job to change myself?

    Many thanks

    On the diesels it is on the front slam panel.
    Itís prob a different part than the diesels, look on eBay do you know what the part looks like?
    This site may help

    A solenoid fault is usually down to an air leak or similar, rather than the solenoid itself

    Yes it is a different part to the diesel. Yes i know what it looks like, but I can't find it on the car.

    Does anyone here have a workshop manual? I just need to know the location on the 2011 2.0 turbo PETROL engine.

    That link should give you an exploded parts diagram to help point you.

    Sadly it shows me nothing apart from the chassis type when i type in my VIN. It seems this is a rare car. VIN is WOLGS6EE9B1108368 if you'd be kind enough to try it yourself. I may be doing something horribly wrong.

    I am sincerely grateful for your help and patience.

    I have had that bother before. Try using the manual selection just using the model type etc.
    I have had a dealer email me a diagram before to make sure correct part

    That's great thanks. I'll get her over the pit later and have another look.
