    You've not made the video public mate so it's asking for a password.

    bit of a long story realy

    didnt say before but up untill half hour ago i had this turbo listed on ebay, didnt say before because i didnt want to be see as advertising it
    got it about a year ago from a well known member from this site. didnt realy think the play was a problem untill every interested buyer asked if i could check it

    Like said, you can get it refurbed for an hybrid..it will save you a few hundred than buying an hybrid out right.....there is little else you can do with it, put it back on ebay as spares or repair?
