Yep, they should fix it, it is an engine fault.

Yup

UPDATE:
Took the car this morning, they asked to to take it to the mechanics they use (on our way home so no problem) anyway, mechanic diagnosed it as the turbo being the problem so that (and the broken pipe) is all being fixed now. And all under warranty so I don't need to pay a thing :)

Cheers guys, will let you know when it's done

Take care,

Great result Nathan, likely that problem was already existing when you got the car but just waiting to surface.

Thanks. Ya I reckon so. My bump I think was really a blessing in disguise as it brought it up before the warranty expired. :) Ta Paul

Just as an update, hopefully I should have my car back at the beginning of next week. They had problems ordering the turbo.

Get them to do a forced regeneration - if your turbo hasn't been performing well of late, especially if in regards to split pipes / bearings, your DPF won't have been regenerating, this can lead to the car needing a new engine as was my case - forced regen cost me £20 from a ford dealers, get it done son!

It all seems to be going wrong :(
Apparently the turbocharger finally arrived earlier this week, but it was the wrong one! So am stilllll waiting on it :(

Out of interest, you're not obliged a courtesy car as standard are you whilst warranty work is being carried out? I'm guessing not, but worth a try!

The 1.8tdci does not have a DPF ( one of the reasons I got the 1.8)
