Need some advice on scraping an A4. I have a 1996 A4 1.8T FWD and today I went to fix a whistling problem on the exhaust, which I figured was just a gasket. However it turned out to be a large crack in the turbo.
I got the car about a year a go as I had planed to break it for spares, but after doing a bit of work on the car I got it back on the road an put 30K on the clock. I have been looking around for a 1.9TDi for some time due to the amount of miles I do, so I just cannot justify spending £200 - £400 on a used / new turbo, and the body work on the car is not in great condition (could do with a respray). So figured now is the time to get rid and look for the TDi.
The question is should I just phone up a local scrap yard or sell the bits or should break the bits I can and then phone the scap yard to collect the car would I get much for the car?
I know the engine is good as I had the car on the rolling road last year, so I think I should be able to get a few quid for the engine, but would the breaker take a car without an engine or would I have to pay them?
Dyno result for the engine
PLEASE DO NOT PUT ANY PARTS REQUESTS ON THIS THREAD I'M JUST LOOKING FOR ADVICE AT THE MOMENT. Thanks
