    has anyone done this on the a3 2.0 tdi and is it easy any problems later and what are your thoughts on doing this job.

    sounds easy job but not sure on weather to do it or not.

    plus my turbo wines and whistle loud dont know if thats normal but it loud and that at low revs.

    You will find loads of oil burners have tried this and to good results, i would bit slightly worried about the wining though, that dont sound good.

    Drop Vagworld a PM he is really good with the oil burners

    Like i said i would ask Vagworld, but wining turbo usually means it requires a re build.

    There is a good place in Skelmersdale - AC Turbo's. I had mine done as i tried the Mr Muscle cleaning but it was to far gone. £260 comes back like new.

    Does it smoke ??

    Just done a quick search for you at yes its is natural for the turbo to make some noise but if this is excessive then the bearings are going, it may also just be dirt, do the Mr Muscle thing and see what its like after

    You will have to remove your turbo and take to them as it is a shed on a farm, good lads though the owner used to work for Garratt
