I've tried the soaking approach with no results. There are two things you can do: Bosch will rebuild these for a rather hefty price (about $300), and it will return with a two-year warranty. Check out the Bosch Automotive Tradition website: here

For the time being, you can bypass the AAV by plugging the top port on the valve and the corresponding port on the manifold. The car will run like utter crap when cold, but should be fine at operating temperature.

Keep us posted.

HI Bruce,

Did you ever get issue resolved? I had the same problem and it was the auxillary air slide valve...which are nearly impossible to find new since they have been discontinued. I haven't found anyone who remanufatures them but heard that someone is out there.

I recently got on Facebook and joined the 164 group. Great resource of information. Actually, my car has a page not me.

Ebay is a good source of parts amd you can get your rotors there...or anything else you need. I actually bought a car just to strip it down.

My number is (937) 361-0378 just in case you have any questions.

Good Luck and maybe see you at the national show.

Got the idle pretty much fixed... No more high idle

Got an a/c replacement hose made, used compressor and air works now... Yeah!!

My son accidentally broke the driver side mirror off... So looking for another mirror... Probably the whole thing, not just the mirror

Any ideas let me know please... House guys were so helpful with other issued I had

Also need replacement yellow lens cover for left (driver side)front turn signal

Also bought 30 year VCOA metal emblem and it is now is on my grille!! Looks great...

Thanks. ,

Bruce
