    Fitting Replacement Turbo

    I've just sourced a replacement turbo & manifold & waiting for delivery......Fitting seems fairly straightforward, but is there anything I should know, before I fit it?........thanks...........

    you will need a new gasket to go on the manifold to block and a new one for the exhaust to turbo. if you ask at the dealer they will print of a diagram for you to show you where they go.and remember when its all fitted dont rev it up straight away just let it tick over to get the oil round it. and also i would advise an oil and filter change at the same time so new oil goes through it.

    I'm now wondering whether to get a garage to do it, as I understand the manifold bolts need to be tightened to a specific torque.......Is that correct?

    this link explains. the youtube vid is for the petrol though

    also the video shows you how to install a turbo from start to finish, but as above the diesel may be different

    Don't take this the wrong way as its not intended, but as your asking soo many question it would appear like myself your not that clued up on doing things like this. In that case i would defineately reccommmend getting it done by a mechanic. Proper fitment can be the difference between a turbo lasting 500 miles or 100k. And as you'll know turbos aren't cheap so i'd say get it fitted by a mechanic and watch him do it then you will gain some knowledge and maybe be able to do it yourself in future.
