I can feel my Syatica twinging already :) If that's the most likely cause, you can remove the one bolt holding the air flue to the lower dash and pull the flue out of the way. I found a box clipped to the air flue which I am informed is the central locking CU. This can be unclipped and left dangling. You'll find the end of the vac pipe from the intake manifold clearly visible. The Y junctions to the boost gauge pipe and the fuel overpressure switch. Look out for a floating pipe labelled -3-. I'm interested in whether you have one as well :) It is possible by contorting into the foot well (passenger side for us here in the UK), but removing the seat would make it much easier. I'm 6'2" and find it a struggle, but possible, hence my previous comment about yoga. I'm interested if the fuel over-pressure switch can be bypassed by simply removing the Y piece and connecting the vac pipe form the intake manifold to the boost gauge hose. Why do the electrical contacts need connecting together? Surely the over-pressure switch would just think you had vac pressure all the time (never boosting) and thus would never cut out. Paul
