C5 2.0 HDI 136 Turbo Replacement

Post by aneesh84 »

After siren like noise since last 2 years, finally the turbo seems to be leaking engine oil since the exhaust has white smoke.

I was looking to buy a CHRA from ebay and give to a garage for replacement.

Any advises or precautions?

Is it necessary to change the oil feed pipe to turbo, or it can be cleaned ?

Thanks.... did you just buy the cartridge and replaced the core yourself, or give the turbo to some professional service to calibrate, test and change the core? is it a complex operation?

How did you clean the hose?

I did it my self. The biggest problem for me was the access to remove turbo. All the rest done at kitchen table with home tools. Just carthridge replacement was needed.

I did some turbo dissasembling in the 90's on R5 GTt.... so it was an easy job for me to replace CHR. If you are not used to such a work youtube can be helpful or just take it to the garage.
