    What exactly is the issue with the turbo Andy? Have you considered sending it off to somewhere like Turbo Technics for them to fix it/replace it with a reconditioned one?

    Maybe exhaust/manifold related? Obviously you wanna be sure it's the turbo before you start taking it off/sending it off. Has the dealer told you it's definitely the turbo or was it more of a "It may be the turbo" and more often than not it's not the turbo! lol

    I once sent off a turbo (Volvo 740 turbodiesel) for exchange because I thought it was whistling a lot. Got a recon back (£350 less in the wallet - it was a long time ago!) and it made as much noise if not more. I'm convinced now there was nothing wrong with the original, just me being paranoid. I think nowadays I'd leave it a bit longer until I was sure. My Golf's turbo whistles, chirps and wheezes really loudly, always has done. Signum is so quiet and refined in comparison. Sorry to read about your problems, Andy. Hope you get it all sorted out without having to shell out too much.

    andy,

    gogole searched your engine /turbo noise and lo and behold there was several matches including taken from the auto express review
    long term test

    http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carrevi...ll_zafira.html

    most important bit highlighted - seems to be a blight/trait of the motor

    Second opinion
    Maybe it's because I hadn't driven the Zafira for a while, whereas Dawn is in it nearly every day, but I noticed a few faults. The intrusive turbo whistle is now louder, the windscreen washers have given up the ghost - and there's also the steering defect. The wheel is now heavier at lower speeds, while a weird cog-like feel has developed. The noise goes when on the move - or perhaps I just can't hear it over the engine! Lesley Harris, road tester

    hth

    regards

    Dez

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven

    Signum's going great - just turned 46000 this weekend - well, if you have to do a 260 mile round trip to your nearest meet it soon mounts up. Still got 2 Golfs though MUST SELL!!! Should really be using my old car til it sells but can't stop myself taking the Signum every time - I'm sure you understand...Just read about yours and Jo's good news too - keeping my fingers crossed for you.
