In Topic: RS Turbo seals gone

13 July 2009 - 09:33 PM

Well the turbo seals have gone on my t3 garrett providing me witha lovely smokey exhaust so i can't pass my MOT. Wondering is it'd be easier to buy a new turbo for "???" pounds or get a kit for about 30 and try and rebuild it myself.. or if that's out of an amatuer's reach?

On a quickie my back numberplate light has gone and it's not the bulb or the fuse seeing as i've checked and changed both, any insight on either of these would be great cheers :).

I wouldn't risk rebuilding it yourself as you could do more harm than good. A rebuilt turbo from a reputable reconditioner is cheaper than a rebuilt top-end plus the recon turbo that you should have bought in the first place.

could well be a temp sensor?

I'm possibly too late but I agree with that. You could always try looking on www.rsownersclub.co.uk for other ideas if you're still stuck.

I dripped a bit of mine onto the paint below and now it's made that bit look crap, but the scrape looks fine. Anyone know how to clean the dripped part off?

Assuming you wiped the drip off after it happened, if you can't polish out the remaining blemish with mild cutting compound for clear coat then you may have to use P2000 grit wet & dry then the compound. Be very careful as today's clear coat is not very thick. Halfords has a couple of compounds for clear coat on their shelves.
