150 TDI Anni turbo blew on the way home from work last night, just a whoosh sound then smoke like I have'nt seen before, Limped home , just 2 miles, and there was oil all over the back of the car and dripping out of the exhaust.I removed the pipe from the centre of the turbo, 9that spring hose clip is a swine) then felt inside and found broken bits of turbine blades. The car is out of warranty by 3 months but has only done 30,100 miles,so I rang VW customer services and was pleasantly surprised. It is subject to a diagnosis by vw dealer but the guy I spoke to seemed to think I could end up having to pay 50% or less. I have to get it to a dealer myself and pay for the diagnosis myself, but it could be worse, new turbo alone is around ?800-900, fitting ?300 and probably a new cat because of the oil contanination. If vw wont pay does anyone know of a good turbo specialist in the newcastle area? I'll keep you posted.
