Thanks steph. And done some research mintalkin and that's what I think it is, sticking turbo vanes. Is there a fix or is it a new/ recon turbo? :-/

I apologise for all the questions but I've never dealt with a turbo. Now a few people have told me it's not good practise to split the turbo. Is there a reason behind it? I don't mind having a go at dismantling as long as I ain't going to cause a problem. Lol :-)

I suggest to contact a professional, he can do it for you, but that's not what you want, I presume?

Disassemble can sometimes be a hard job.
It is possible that the bolts will break when loosening them, etc.
When that happens, you're in deep sh*t..

Well I don't want to take it to a garage if I can help it but known my luck I will bust some bolts. So maybes that's the safest way at least if they bust a bolt it's down to them. Ha ha :-/

You can solve the problem with carbon and soot build up with out dismantling the turbo with Revive Turbo and Engine cleaner. I've used this on my old VAG group TDI to solve the turbo vanes and egr sticking. It costs £30 a bottle off eBay. All you do is take off the air intake pipe after the mass airflow meter and spray in there following the instructions on the bottle. I would do this once then a second time about 2 weeks later then get it straight in for an oil and filter change. It saved me spending £3500 on parts labour and vat and never got the fault again. In total it cost me £150 to sort. But then I decided to trade in about 3months later for a fiesta ST.
