    Righty oh, appears the VNT veins on my BRE 2.0TDi are sticking when nearing 3k rpm...

    So this Mr Muscle fix larky, tried it & it didnt do much. However is there any easier acess into the hot side of the turbo other then trying to blinding get a flexi pipe into it or removing the whole charger?

    Mine was the same mate. Got it taken off car stripped and cleaned took the garage about 4-5 hours.

    My opinion take Tony's advice.

    2 weeks after getting it stripped and cleaned it blew on me. The money I paid for this practically would have covered a refurb turbo with 2 year warranty from Essex turbo and that's where I got mine from in the end.

    Urgh.... ****** car.

    Now keep getting a low oil level light aswell.... so i reckon the oil pump hex is about to die.

    Given ive done 53k miles in it, and its now on 96k, i suppose it was bound to die at some point :/
