    I had the mod done on my 1997 SRi and actually bought a new icv as I was
    advised this was better in the long run than cleaning.
    There is also a software change that can be done to stop the cutting out
    problem but this needs a main dealer for the changes to be made.

    cover.not very expensive and you can fit it yourself available from any
