So here we are.

Ok, here's the part.

No, I haven't checked out the numbers on the part on the internet yet, going to have a look after I've posted this.

It lives behind the battery, below the expansion tank - I had to remove the battery to get decent pics.

As you can see in the 3rd and 4th pictures it has a simple male/female connector so it is a replaceable part.

It seems to disappear into the ECU area, I couldn't track it after it went under the ECU so it may be connected directly to the ECU . Didn't feel like taking the whole metal surround gubbins out again to check, was a PITA the first time. more stupid engineering.
