159 2.4 turbo replacement
It would seem that the turbo in my 159 needs replacing. It has developed a loud whistling noise in the past month or so that's getting worse.... It's got a bit over 140000km on the clock.
Need to check the pipes for defects too, but I'm quite sure it's the turbo unit.
Now, what kind of operation are we talking about?
I'm quite cabable and have a good access beneath the car (have a "grease pit" in the garage), but eLearn suggest removing the front bumber and other "difficult" stuff from the way first.... is this so, or is it easier than it would seem?
So do I DIY or take to the garage and pay ~600€ for the operation? I have already sourced a factory reconditioned turbo unit quite cheap (500€ vs. ~1200€ what the garage is asking).
Anyone have any experience?
