I cant help you with anything further, because I had someone do this work. Pretty much my bank one was pretty clogged up. I also need to update my vanos solenoids covers. It shouldnt be hard to do those though.I'll get some seals ordered and drop by Maplins for some diodes(1N4148) just on case.
Is there any better rated diodes which could be used instead of the 1N4148?
I have read through all the forum(s) posts and if I understand correctly the black line on the diode goes towards the black + wire ?
Also is it best to re position these diodes from the main board to the smaller board attached to the solenoids?

I did some scope testing of a solenoid and an OEM MOV on the bench, manually switching 12V on and off.Any small signal diode will carry more current than a 1N4148. But they handle up to 200 mA. How much current do they need to control? They are certainly fast enough for the job.
Hi I didn't know you could get the oem partsThis is more out of curiosity then anything, but why change from the OEM if the OEM is available? This doesn't seem to be a common failure point in the system so why mess with it?
Maybe I am confused then. I thought the 1N4148 was the OEM...Hi I didn't know you could get the oem parts
Do you know where you can purchase these from? In the U.K
