Hi,

Focus 1.6 tdci 2005

After my car making a whining sound once it hit around 2000rpm, I took it into the garage today only to be told that I need a new turbo! Great :(

Mr mechanic said its going to be around 1000 to supply a new turbo, all parts (hoses etc...) and labour. Again, great...

Now, unfortunately I don't have that sort of money lying around so I'm looking into supplying parts and fitting it myself. I have a haynes manual and it 'looks' pretty straight forward even though haynes are giving it a 4 out of 5 difficulty rating?

Could anyone please shed any light on the work I am hoping to carry out? i.e. parts that must be replaced once removed, things I MUST do, or things that could go wrong if I were to not follow procedure correctly, apart from ruining the 500 turbo I would of paid for!

Thank anyone who can help in advance!

Sure it is a delicate procedure. Would you consider having your car checked in a different garage? Maybe you just don't need to fully renew the whole system. But if this is more likely to happen, it would be commendable to leave it on professional hands - unfortunately along with the hefty price.
