    Hey Guy's

    Any got handy a guide for removing the turbo on a BKD? Believe my Variable Vane Turbo may be sticking as Limp Mode is becoming the norm during a journey and have an over boost fault code showing.

    I've had a look underneath and it's well and truly hidden at the back, instead of spending days under he car trying to figure it out, I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on removing it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Had the same problem with my BKD engine few months ago, it was going on limp mode because of over boost! but it wasn't the turbo it was the filthy diesel filter that i changed and it's been fine every since no more issues.

    If you search you will find a thread how to clean turbo vane etc
