Hi there,


My 1.8 TDCI 53 plate Focus is in need of a replacement turbo ( no surprise there then from what I've read!). I really cannot afford new so I've been scouring the net and found one. It is listed as being off of a 2.0 Mondeo, 2004, 115 BHP, Garrett M46. The turbo off of my car says Garrett M46 on it. I have contacted the company and he's said that as long as the numbers are the same it will be fine. His photos show no numbers other than the M46 and I can't see any other numbers on my turbo either.


My issue is that some other people are also selling the Garrett M46 but say that it is not suitable for a Focus, so exactly what numbers am I looking for?


Any advice appreciated! My children are not happy at the prospect on missing out on a camping holiday due to a lack of car to go in!


Many Thanks
