An ICV on a 1.2 8v is on the firewall just above the inlet plenum, has a pipe going into it and a wire coming out the other side.

reet well I took it all apart, and that black box is what controls the actual valve. The valve was set into a metal block beneath that big circle plastic thing with the torx screw in the top of the photo.

The spring on the circled bit in the picture keeps the valve just open enough for the car to idle, and upon revving the throttle, it lets the valve open firther.

I wiped all of the valve down and give it a squirt with WD40.

Im now leaving my battery unplugged to reset my ECU.... for a laugh

Cheers all, Ill see if this sorts my EM light problem
