Leaky turbo?

Post by Wilson » Fri Nov 23, 2018 11:31 pm

Hi all. Looking for some advice re a leaking turbo. The van is running fine (I’ve only had it a couple of months) but I noticed when changing the oil and filter there is a fair amount of black stuff coming from the bottom of the turbo. I’m hoping to just pull it off and give it a good soak.

My questions are...

How do I get it off (it’s pretty well tucked under the bulkhead).

Will I be able to put it back on with same parts or do I need to get some seals for it?

All advice gratefully received.

Cheers. Wilson

Recently changed the turbo on my 2.0 CR not a 5 minute job.
Need to remove assembly under the wipers for better access, remove DPF (to do this need to undo and lower front cross member/offside driveshaft) and then uncouple turbo that comes out complete actuator/manifold.
Recon turbo?
