    First no need to shout and turn off the caps

    2nd no need to remove the sub frame or steering rack

    The turbo can be removed from above if your a adequate mechanic, the easiest way to do it is to remove the head as you will have more room to work

    Did you buy the car like that or did you blow the turbo? If you bought it like that, did you not notice before you bought it?

    You can get the turbo fully rebuilt by CR Turbos for just over the £400 mark. Welcome to CRTurbos

    If you don't know what you're doing then give it to a mechanic who knows how to do it. It's quite a job to get to it so don't attempt it!

    No just happend :-( but got a good buy on it .. Found a k04 turbo for £280 on eBay as mine isn't even getting boost so presume it's gone completely !!
    Got my mate helping tomorrow to get this off so I can make sure on model of turbo as it has a fmic and is kicking out 280 bhp so kind of thinking not a standard turbo ? Tried to have a look but no chance of seeing until some bits moved !
    Cheers for help guys
