Has anyone used one of these or similar?
Garrett Turbocharger Turbo rebuild / repair service kit GT15-25 GT1749V | eBay
I'm assuming my Avant 1.9 TDi 130 turbo is as old as the car, 146k, so would I see any benefits from carrying out a turbo clean and rebuild? I have already done a Mr Muscle clean and have had no problems with the car in the 6 months I've owned it. I will soon have the car on the drive way for a week to carry out a full service and timing belt change, amongst other things, and I'm thinking while I've got the front off that the turbo will be easier to remove too. I will also be giving my intake system a good clean.
My thinking is that the turbo seals, bearings etc are subject to wear just like any other on the car so should therefore be serviced occasionally. Is this sound reasoning or should I stick to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mantra when it comes to turbos?
