Hi I'm getting this code and I've changed the camshaft sensor but it's not resolved it.

On cold start the engine is running lumpy but once it's running even 30 seconds it calms down and when it's normal idle it runs just fine and boosts 1.6 bar once warmed up.

Any ideas what can be the issue? it does say circuit but I've checked connectors and all look ok.

Looking from the front of the car it's at the back right of the engine, can see it in the background of this photo:

Thanks, I am wondering if giving it a cleanup will resolve the issue or if its the solenoid that has just had it.

Hopefully it is just the solenoid mate and not the adjuster pulley itself, check the connector on top for damage

Yeah as the problem was as I put the airbox back on I put too much pressure on the solenoid connector and snapped it a bit. Changed the vvt solenoid and all was good 😎

Where did you get the new solenoid from

I can only find cheap ones on Ebay, can't find any OEM ones

Thanks zig

Got it from Listers on here in the forum trading partners section of the forum. I've put a Revo intake on now so easy access to top of the engine.
