I am looking for a idle valve controller (VDO). The original costs 150 euros... Is there any alternative? Thank you.

look at this site:  https://www.autosensorberlin.com/en/leerlaufregler-opel-astra-combo-corsa-kadett-tigra-entsp-a95160-17112027-817254.ht

i suspect that it will be the generic equivalent to the C1 unit  (hella or vdo)

Thank you.
What leads you to that particular one?

just a hunch, provided the pintles are similar in shape.   they all work on the same principle.
these units are free running three phase ac reversing motors, controlled by the ecu trying to maintain a set constant idle speed.
i have cleaned out these units before, with good results.

I can't find technical specs for this one to ensure it has same or similar pintles.
You strongly believe this is a good candidate or should I visit a parts shop with the C1 one to find a similar one?

car or bike parts shops, breakers yard.
hope you have success.
