    leaking washer on the vxr turbo

    theres a sort gold coloured washer on the vxr turbo,as wen i went to get precat cat fitted yesterday its leaking,i presume coolant as i have wondered where i was loosing it from. its a constant drip, so question is can i just maybe loosen off the turbo and replace the washer or have i got to take the whole turbo off.
    the washer is like gold in colour and if under the car is on your right hand side as u look up

    If you think you can get to it then all you need to do is undo the bolt (Bango bolt) and replace the washer (There is one either side of the pipe it goes through).

    I cant think whick pipe it is.

    Do you have a picture of your turbo you can put an arrow on and post up?
