I don’t think your car uses that part at all. Your throttle body is made by Magneti Marelli, not Bosch

That's what i thought,but if you go online and look you will find one listed for my model volvo. It looks like a regular TPS , i thought maybe for the gas pedal or something,it must go somewhere otherwise why would their be several manufactures making one for my car.Just curious where it applies.

Bad parts information is rampant in the auto industry. Dont take parts listings and applications as gospel.

Try putting the Bosch number into search function on FCP site - if nothing comes up, I think its a part for something else.
