Can anyone guess/suggest why the housing needed to be replaced; > romp-related, bad-luck/lemon, par for the course at 24K? You tell us - why did the throttle housing need replacement? How did you come to the conclusion that it did? If it was a garage who came to this conclusion, did you not ask them at the time? The throttle body is a piece of cast alloy. It would only need replacing if it was broken. Did you get a look at the old housing? -- Grunff
