    Did you have a code with the fault because as far as I know the:

    Barometric Pressure Sensor (F96) is located in the Diesel Direct Fuel Injection Engine Control Module (J248).

    The sensor on the intake pipe to manifold is what is known as the Map Sensor and consists of two sensors built into one unit:

    1: Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor G71
    2:Intake Air Temperature Sensor G72

    Hope this helps.
