My brother in-law is having problems with his 1.8 GTI TURBO.

Anyone spare some advice on this code? It was sent into a BMW specialist garage to solve the problem as they said the waste gate was seized or something and freed it and it's once again poped up.

If someone could possible share some info and much help as possible would be very appreciated.

Thank you
