    Anybody got a guide / pictures of how exactly to do the Mr Muscle clean on the turbo on a BKD?

    Tried to follow others but the turbo seems to be in a very inconvenient place, different too other tutorials.

    Also, how the hell do you remove the EGR valve to clean? - I cannot get the third hex bolt out as there is no room between radiator and/or pipes around the front of the engine.

    Regards

    Your best removing the whole turbo unit and cleaning it by stripping it down

    If you want to muscle it then you need to get the pipe in the top of the manifold where the EGR pipe bolts to (before the cooler)

    You should be able to remove the EGR valve with just an Allen key, it is a little tight and tricky!

    There's plenty of room to get the egr/imf of, just patients/time needed & as above, remove the whole unit & clean it properly as the Mr Muscle way is temp solution at best.

    If you have a Quattro I'd be prepared for a long day!
