    Had some severe turbo issues last week. Gently limped the car home...

    I found that the inlet fan was rubbing on the turbine housing, due to shaft play.






    Looks like I probably go lucky here! Put in a new (used) one last week and am up and running again. Happy it didn't totally destroy everything and fire it through the intake!

    Thanks Colin for getting me gaskets super fast, and the recommendation on that turbo grease/assembly lube stuff And Thanks Benjamin for getting me the used one!

    Wow, dodged a bullet there. How old was the turbo?

    The one that died was original. So 310,000km. The used replacement one had around 140,000.

    Well, that was actually a smooth fix. Unfortunately, I had it all back together and realized I didn't tension the AC belt... but that was fairly minor!
