Just follow the exhaust pipe and inlet pipe to the turbo, if you can see it, along with hose fittings to oil etc.
if you think you can get plenty of access to the unit and remove it, and not drop it, with spanners etc. good luck !
just be prepared if things go wrong.
get some quotes for the job....

Turbo not kicking


It may have seized up turbo bearings, when they get hot they expand and the turbo blades will not turn. Pull the hose and try to move them, if there is any resistance then that is likely the problem and you will need a new turbocharger installed. Don't replace it until a qualified tech has confirmed that turbo is the problem.

I have problems with the turbo of my Passat 2002 TDI Sometimes it stops working other times it works perfectly. What factors affect the turbo performance. Is the oil type, or coolant a factor?


The wastegate controls the operation of the turbo, it directs exhaust pressure to the turbo, If it does not function properly the turbo will act erratically

On TDI turbo charger intermittent


The N75 valve located on the bulkhead is a common problem on these cars. The N75 valve controls the turbo variable guide vanes. It is located on the bulkhead next to the egr valve controller. These 2 components are the same part, so try interchanging them to see if the problem disapears. Good luck

Hi folks i have got passat 130pd tdi ,it seems


have you checked your air intake system? A clogged air filter will severly limit the amount of air that it can get, or a leak in the exhaust driving the turbo will limit the amount of pressure to spin it. Start by putting a new filter on it. Then if that makes no difference, you can check the waste system by installing a boost gauge, so as to check how much pressure you're actually getting to the manifold. If boost is normal, then you need to look for fuel system or mechanical factors.

Turbos are not something you want to mess with, unless you know what you are doing. Big bucks when the turbo goes south...
Best to go with a good shop that has the gizmos to do the proper analysis of fuel mixture, and ASE mechanics on duty.

19 tdi loss of power


I have a 1999 VW golf tdi with intermittent loss of power. The turbo will cut in for a few seconds, then die forcing you to change gear and get a small boost again. The turbo will not boost much past 2200 rpm. The cars computer has been plugged in at the garage and does not show any problems. Various people have said, replace turbo, air mass meter or just simply wash turbo filters in WD40. Can anyone help?
