FBH Disconnected

Hello all.

The FBH on my 2006 D3 has been disconnected by the previous owner. The electrical connectors is still attached but the coolant hoses have been removed. I think the fuel line is still there but I haven't tested it.

Firstly, why would someone have bothered to do this? Surely if it wasn't running, they would just have left it attached to the coolant loop.

I'd like to reinstate it. Other than reconnecting the hoses, and resetting it with the IID, is there anything else I need to do?

A concern if it is still wired up (2 connectors - 1 power, 1 data) and fuel is connected that it has been running or has attempted to run with no coolant Shocked

It may have been an aborted swap/service of the FBH; some people on here have also said they don't like the idea of it consuming fuel and want to disconnect it. Although doing it via the coolant loop is odd.

Where do the coolant hoses go now, have they been joined together?

Well yes. It does get a bit chilly up here sometime! I bought the car way down country so it probably wasn't an issue there.

I've had a good look at my FBH today. The fuel line and electrics are still attached. There's no sign of the coolant hoses.

Where should the coolant hoses go from the FBH? I'm also missing the hose which loops from the heater unit to the attached coolant pump.
