So, again I've spoken to my local dealer and they said it would take them around 6 - 7 hours to replace my turbo...a bit long don't you think. They mentioned that they may need to remove the intercooler but I don't think that is necessary is it?

I'm thinking I may try it myself...Is this all I would need to do?

1. Replace oil supply line
2. Replace gaskets

If someone could reply I would really appreciate it. Thanks

Intercooler's not in the way. It's a long enough job when you're doing it in a car park in November in Southern England. One or two awkward bits {like the oil return line gasket}, a lot of swearing and about 3mm scraped off my knuckles trying to avoid dismounting the turbo elbow from the downpipe.

I removed mine, gave it to an engineering shop to rebuild and refitted it myself.

The hardest bit of the job is removing the bolts which hold it in place. Things that get hot often like to seize in place and can require a bit of persuasion!
