Firstly I would start by looking for water ingress in to the car by fuse box/control unit

any problems with central locking and electric windows? thinking of dodgy wiring through the door to body gaiters, this can play havoc with the electrics.

oh and on another note, few months back she started to go into limp home every time I pushed her on, variable vane issue, everyone knows the tail, so egr pipe off, filled turbo with oven cleaner, did the rest of the steps freed up the actuator arm, took her out for a good thrash and all was well, until 2 week ago (not as Bad as Before) but push her on really hard an there she gose back into limp home, so my question is, it looks an B@*%$red of a place to get the full turbo off, any one done the job before?
