    Turbo oil return (Or feed) replacing

    I had a leak from the metal pipe that attaches to the bottom of the turbo and block for a while and replaced the gasket when the other engine went in but it still leaked.

    Spoke to a friend who knows the ZLET engine very well and told me the metal pipes can leak at the bendy bit if they are moved sometimes.

    Answer is to fit the VXR one as its bigger and has a rubber hose bit.

    Down side is as its bigger its even more of a pain in the arse to fit.

    We are on about the one that comes off the bottom of the turbo and goes down onto the block where the bolt is the covered by the downpipe?

    I thought he metal pipe had been redesigned anyway with rubber in the middle instead?

    Must do mine again for this same reason, the tops dry buy in the bendy bit the oil starts

    Yeah thats the one.

    Not sure if its been redesigned or not but was told the VXR one was the better one to get. Probably the same part number now

    Have you just replaced yours then Lee?

    Did you get the bottom 24mm bolt out without dropping off the exhaust?

    you can replace it without dropping the exhaust, i found the back bolt on the turbo a pain to get to! Mine was leaking oil a while back and the replacement part i got was the same as the leaky one, couldnt find the one with the rubber pipe instead.

    Part number for the updated oil return pipe is 55351646 & ask them for a new gasket they are about a pound for the gasket.

    Didnt need to drop the exhaust but probably because I have a pre cat removal pipe so a bit more room. Just used a 1/2 drive ratchet and socket which 'just' fitted. And yes that rear Torx bolt is a pain in the arse. Ended up using a woblie bit and 2 extension bars.

    Part number as above and costs £32.85 + Vat (Answered on your other post Jonsey)

    That explains why I had to undo the downpipe and swing it out the way then seeing as mines standard

    Job for next weekend I think along with a oil change
