Why Is This So Important with this particular turbo to get an accurate route cause?
To determine what caused the 1.6 Hdi turbos units to fail in the first place. If you don’t do this then no one should be surprised when the replacement unit fails as well…and remember you’ll most likely not be covered by warranty if this happens.
In many causes these vehicles have numerous faults that have all conspired to destroy the turbo and will do the same to the replacement that’s fitted. We see this all the time. Owners blinded by cost cutting cost themselves a small fortune.
One of the main causes of failure with 1.6 Hdi Turbo is penny pinching!!
So many owners are hell bent on leaving servicing for as long as possible, and then opting for the cheapest service and parts. Baring in mind that 95% of turbo failures are oil related…it’s a false economy especially when you consider that the difference between a cheap sump of oil from the local motorist discount shop and the very best is less than £20!!

The turbo seized straight away or shortly after fitment, it’s making a noise, there’s lots of smoke, there’s no boost or power…the list goes on and this is from the garage that your car might be in!
