    turbo help!!!

    ok so i have established my turbo is well past its best!!!

    its leaking oil and has loads of play on the spindle!!

    im trying to source a replacement in the form of a second hand one which is proving very hard!!

    the car is a 2002 52 plate A4 1.9tdi 100bhp model engine code is AVB

    i havent had chance to get the turbo off yet but got in with my camera so i could get the part number and the only thing i can see is 028145702R

    now what im wondering is if theres any other turbos that will fit!! or am i limited to choice!!

    the only second hand ones i can see are at Ł200 now i want to buy cheap just to see me through till i can get mine reconditioned

    or does anyone know a place that can recon my turbo at a reasonable cost ??

    any other advice appreciated

    thanks stu
