  6. Delete:Stuck turbo oil return pipe to union with block. 1.9tdi axc

    Engine & Gearbox
    Apologies, posted this in the T4 forum when I thought it was the t5. Have recreated it there, but can't see how to delete. Arrgh, After much effort, I have the turbo fully released but I cannot get the turbo oil return pipe off. Undoing the 22mm pipe hex from the van causes the pipe to flex as...

  9. Smaller turbo inlet pipe

    Engine & Gearbox
    I've recently bought a turbo from 'Direct Turbos UK' for my 2.5L 2006 T5. The turbo is fully fitted but the aluminium air intake elbow that I have is too large and won't fit. After reading some other threads I've found that I need the smaller elbow with part number 7H0129654B. TPS said they...

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi All I have a 2000 reg 1.9TD - idles and runs sweetly but has just started screeching about 2000rpm. I had a listen around the top of the engine and sounds like it's coming from the vicinity of the turbo. So far I have re-sealed the inlet manifold gasket (turbo output/below the EGR) and...

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi everyone! I've read every single "limp-mode" thread so far and I couldn't find a solution. My dad has a 2008 T5 Multivan (177hp) with an original but rebuilt turbo fitted. Our problem is that the car goes in limp-mode when you go over 3000 rpm over 4 times. Coil light pops up and you have...
