I am looking for a company or specialist in the UK, who can refurbish a throttle body unit with the code H 1 433 414, which had shown a error message of a Mechanical fault.

unfortunately these are not really worth rebuilding - by the time you shipped it and paid labour, you might as well just buy a replacement. Sorry if you were hoping for a different answer, I trust my honesty is appreciated.

Many thanks for that, there is in fact a company in the UK www.actronics.eu/en/shop/bmw-3-series-e46 who will repair and also ECU's, but not this particular model. One part which I believe could be the problem and can be accessed, is the drive cogged wheel to the butterfly valve and one company, I understand can supply these, but will let you know once I have found them.
Failing which I will obviously have to obtain one off the most expensive replacement parts licensed by BMW, against other manufacturers!

you are welcome. good luck with the repair. Please do not forget to click on a positive rating.
