    Default Replace turbo on 2.2 diesel?

    Hi all, I have read through all the posts/threads on turbo failures I can find but I have yet to see any comments on how difficult they are to replace.
    Is it just a simple bolt on and off for a have a go type like me or should I be seeking proffesional help?

    The first quote I have received is for £1200 supply and fit.
    The green flag guy told me that I should be able to pick up a reco for £250-£300- that means that the garage are stinging me for £900!!!!

    I also reead an onld thread that anyone thinking of replacing a turbo may as sell pay a little more and go for a complete recon engine?

    Any advice would be welcome

    p/s the green flag guy said that the bearings had gone but the impellors were intact. - not sure if this helps.

    Cheers

    As far as im aware (and i may be wrong) but the turbo is easy enough to get on and off - its just a matter of unscrewing stuff and bolting it back on in the correct places but could take a good days work for a normal home mechanic.

    Most mechanical jobs on cars is just a case of unscrewing stuff, what is comes down to is how much you have to unscrew

    The turbo on the dti is very easy to get to and almost as easy to change. It's right at the top of the engine and the hardest bit will be getting the exhaust bolts off and then when putting it back together making sure the oil feed doesn't leak

    Run the engine for a short while. Just enough to heat up the bolts. That'll make it easier to undo.
