    CR Turbos or Turbo Dynamics might be able to rebuild it for you, it depends on the damage. Probably worth contacting them to see.

    Not a cheap one may pay to have a look on Ebay as K04's come up sometimes

    My days! Same almost happened to me... I'd got out the routine of checking my oil, and randmoly whilst topping up the washer water I thought I'd give it a check and to my shock it was below minumum... NO FLIPPING WARNING LIGHT CAME ON EITHER! I shouldn't rely on that totally my bad, I got away with it no damage has been done. Taught me a lesson.
