I am starting to prepare my 1999 CDI for its MOT. While checking at the rear of the offside sill area I found a small loose rubber hose which appeared to have come away from a small round unit fixed to outside of the rear footwell. It is located only a few inches from the inner sill face and just forward of the offside lower main suspension arm. It is rusted beyond belief, although the input and output tubes and the electrical connection is intact. There does appear to be traces of fuel in the pipes. It is now U/S.
What is its function ? Is it still required or can the tubes be bridged ? It will have to be replaced if it is a fuctional item.
On checking the Rover info CD I eventually located a part that appears to fit its description. It is labelled as SENSOR - HEATED OXYGEN - RHD (HO2S) on page CO908
Anybody got any ideas or Info ?? I would appreciate some assistance
Thanks Jupiter ( Drummond )
