MG MGF Technical - 48mm ally throttle body
|Anyone here know the rover part number (&approx cost( for the ally throttle body which is a direct swap for the plastic one on the std 118 engine?|
Also how trickey is it to fit?
|I believe the part number is MHB000100.|
Not dificult to fit, but IMHO is a lot easier if you have access to a set of rachet spanners, as one bolt is difficult to access and there is not enough room to use a socket.
can be done with normal spanner but takes a lot longer!
|I agree with Steve, pretty easy to fit (direct swap) - but a ratchet spanner is a must for the front top retaining bolt - it is right under the body work there, and not really accessible with a socket.|
I've got a spare one for sale if yr interested? It's 52mm not 48mm so I don't know if you would have any air filter issues as I wasn't using a filter. Very easy to fit (apart from the 1 fiddly bolt!). Am changing to throttle bodies so it's surplass to requirements now...
they cost £131+p&p from Mike Satur. Similar price from B&G I believe, and no doubt loads more from a Rover Dealer!!
|I have a 52mm alloy TB also going spare, only 3 months old.|
£80 inc P&P for anyone who is intrested.
