Turbo actuator / wastegate moving when idle? - help

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

i have been having some issues with my Ford Fiesta 1.0 eco boost 2013

i recently had the turbo replaced (second hand on eBay but was in mint condition) and has been fine up until recently 

I have noticed that the turbo actuator or wastegate (I think this is the same thing) is moving when the engine is on but in idle - is this normal behaviour? 

I was told that this could be the solenoid so I had this replaced - wasn’t the issue and I doubt the turbo as it’s been recently replaced 

which leaves me to assume it may be either a vacuum leak or the actuator itself 

Could anyone help/ advise - 

here is a YouTube video of my turbo wastegate
