Swirl Flaps

PMW - Originator of the swirl flap blanking plate

BMW diesel engines produced between 2000 and 2008 all have a particular design problem with inlet manifold butterfly flaps (commonly known as swirl flaps). Swirl flaps are used inside the inlet manifold of the BMW M47TU & M57TU diesel engines to vary the length of inlet manifold tract subject to load and anticipated demand.

A faulty swirl flap will almost certainly lead to catastrophic engine damage/failure. Don’t get caught out, get your car checked out NOW.

PMW carry large stocks of all necessary parts required to conduct a swirl flap removal and blanking procedure. Please call/contact the office for advice Or to purchase necessary components. 01245 496739
