    Hi Richard,

    You'll need the part number from the current turbo or Audi to tell you from you chassis number (checking the unit will be easier)

    We had the same thing on our 130tdi golf. I bought a re-cored turbo from turbo active, cost about 400, so new core and old shells that had been cleaned up - looked like new.

    Then I asked a local garage to fit as the turbo is behind the engine in the golf - fitting cost 150 including oil.

    I'd say possible to DIY on an A4 but maybe get a quote first!

    take the turbo off
    send it either to turbo dynamics AET etc etc
    and have them recon it
    will range between 250 and 450 depending on why its gone !
    if it has gone

    Look down the lefthand (drives) side of the engine.

    Part number should be on a flat part of the cold side which is the silver bit.

    Good luck!

    thats your vin number
    as above look on drivers side

    when you find turbo look more to the front of car for part number

    Whether they're trying to rob you depends on your interpretation of dealer pricing. As all things you get what you pay for, audi will give a two year warranty I expect.

    to be honest id get a garage to take it off and refit
    reason i say this is that you couldnt find it no offence but you say ya not a spanner man
    have it removed you send it off to get it recon will be cheaper then get them to refit also get a new oil feed pipe
