    Hi just a quickie driving home from the girlfriends last night, and after pulling up at lights I thought I heard a noise but didn't think anything of it till I set off, when I set off my turbo seems to have developed a crazy rattle, I know it's the turbo as on idle you can't hear anything and when you listen you can hear the engine fine but notice the rattle, just woundered if someone could tell me what it was and wether I need to buy a new one. It's a k04 turbo
    thanks :)

    Ok I'll have a look when I get home, do they have a little play in them or none at all

    If it was the cat would it increase sound as the revs go up? Been having a good listen today and it sounds like there a hole in manifold but I dno think ill take it to a garage it drives spot on and hasn't lost any power or anything
