    MK5 Turbo whistle

    Hi all,

    I have a MK5 1.7 tdi astra club estate and the whistle on the turbo is quite pronounced. Is this normal or do I need to butter up the minister of finance for some cash to have it fixed?

    Cheers ws

    If it's doing at at low revs.......i.e. even in first gear, it'll be the turbo itself.......I've just bought a replacement for mine, because of same problem
