Flapper valve

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what i need to disconnect in order to try this "fix" that seems to be very popular? I've heard its just a case of disconnecting a cable?

Does it throw up dash errors at all?

It's very easy dude,
Two bolts hold the cover on, remove these
Your find a pulley underneath , rotate to give your self sum slack then just pop out the cable end , replace the cover , took me less than two minutes

Perfect thanks for this, do i need to do anything with the cable? Just leave it loose?

I think somebody posted a link to a youtube vid on how to disconnect the control servo near the ECU, which I'd also like to do because even though I disconnected mine as stated above, it still resets each time you turn ignition on. I know it's not turning anything but, just a needless step and it doesn't throw any codes if you do.

*clarification* - if you disconnect butterfly, the servo still moves, it's just not moving anything. It may have been confusing to some.

I removed the cable and motor too. Not that it really weighs anything, just cleans it up. And no more "WEEWOO" sound when you turn on the ignition.

Thanks for the help, I disconnected the cable at the weekend than went for a 120 mile ride to test it out whilst looking for a new summer jacket.

In all honesty i couldn't tell the difference! Maybe i don't do enough slow speed stuff to notice the change?

+1. It sounds the same to me, too. I just feel better knowing I have the flap disconnected.
