Hi there good afternoon to you and sorry for the delayed response

Ok the part you refer to is the turbo variable vane actuator vacuum solenoid

This is located at the rear of the engine block and is secured by 2x10 mm nuts and is easily accessible from the rear of the engine )

It has 3 vacuum hoses on it (ensure these are a nice tight fit and aren't chaffed or collapsed at any points as I have seen garages replace this valve when the fault is the pipework or turbo itself

If you need anymore help or advice on issue please let me know
