Mine's an S2 and it hasn't got a rubber cover - added lightness you know.

I was a bit worried about it damaging the gauge so thought I'd pull off the supply from the Boost Pressure Transducer but it obviously works in the other direction as it stayed the same. Then I noticed the bottom screw was loose allowing a 'floating earth' and a few turns to tighten it up and every hunky-dory again. Offending screw shown in this one..

Just thought I'd share...

My gauge started to be eratic, but the turbo appeared to be working normally. The forum was my first thought, and sure enough...a loose ground screw. It was that simple, once you have the benefit of the combined experiences of members. :cheers:

Posted that 4 years ago. So pleased owners are still finding it helpful.. makes taking a few minutes to share info so worthwhile. That's why LEC's orderly structure is so much better than Faceache and other chit-chat sites.
