Idle air screw

Post by Thicketmatt » Sun Jul 21, 2013 9:44 pm

My 93 cabby is running well, but replacing my old vacuum lines as a precaution. I noticed the idle bypass screw on the back of the throttle will wiggle slightly and was wondering if this means I need to replace the o ring. If so, is it the same as for the cis engines? I saw them for sale on mk1 autohaus but it only mentions cis - not digifant. Also, my screw sticks a fair way out from the throttle body but all pics I've seen of the screw show it screwed almost flush. Are the digifant screws different as well? Thanks

Yes they are a tad longer.
If it can wiggle then the real question is can you turn it with your finger tips.
If you answered yes, then replace the o-ring.

You can go to Moogie, as he is a good guy, or, count the turns to remove it, write that number down.
Take the screw to a hardware store and get a new o-ring for less than a buck.

Replace the screw and screw back in the same number of turns that it took to take it out. 7mm bolt.
