    A3 1.8T turbo Removal

    Is it possible to remove the turbo up through the bonnet, or do I need to get underneath the car to do this?

    any advice would be great.

    Thank you

    Brilliant, thank you. that's exactly what I was hoping someone would say.

    Figured it could be got out via the top but just wanted confirmation before I do it.
