    Sticky VNT vanes - Northeast people

    Hi.
    I am wanting to clean out my turbo/vanes on my A3 2.0 TDI 170 with the Mr Muscle Method.
    The problem is, I know jack sh-t about engines and nuts/bolts.

    Is there anyone in the Northeast that could do this for me? I am based near Middlesbrough.

    I will obviously buy the Mr Muscle and pay for your time. :-)

    Thanks
    Chris

    170 vanes problem, not one I've heard much about, my advice is if it does suffer from this, remove the turbo & do it properly, Mr Muscle is temporary at best.
