Cleaning turbo JTDm

Today I cleaned intake and turbo on my JTDM 150HP (intake part in other thread)

Diconnect heat exchanger pipe from turbo (ilu. 3 & 2)

Spray cleaning fluid through the turbo.
I used an old sponge to close the gap - so cleaner stays inside the turbo.
Let it work one hour

Assemble the whole thing again and crossed my fingers that the car starts ...
It did ...again a lot of smoke
Turbo cleaner also cleans the DPF
Acceleration improves, turbo spools faster

Turbo cleaner is very caustic - take care of eyes and hands.
Use nitrile gloves and goggles
