    As above really. i have posted a clip of movement but have nothing to compare it to.

    from what i have heard is that the oil takes up some of the slack/movement on the shaft, is this true or utter non-sense?

    as a abit of a side note does anyone know the part number for the turbo housing bolts as 1 of them is snapped?

    any help would be appreciated. thanks. Tom

    You are well within your rights to ask for your money back there mate. I've recently changed one at work that was better than that

    I never actuall knew what a sha**ed turbo looked like, now i do.

    Did you buy this as a working unit or spares/repair??

    If your getting it refurbed you may as well get it made into a hybrid :p

    Open a dispute with ebay and paypal will give you your doh back mate. If the ad said fully working then your onto a winner, and clearly that is not fit for use.
