What is important is that you get the correct part. There were 2 variants of the 2.2. If you need the part number pop the VIN up.

sorry for delay in answering I have been very busy . I have had one from euro parts for £94 pounds and so far its working ok and the car seems more lively now . its only a 1/2 hour job to do .I could have got one of ebay for £68 pounds but I thought its best to deal with a local firm at the price

I hope it lasts! If that was ECP they have a really bad reputation for parts quality.
