i want to exchange the wastegate on my VW T5 1.9tdi 85KW 2004 engine code AXC.
i have tried to trace this part online, but for the T5 1.9tdi 85KW there seem to be none !!?
this is the only part i have ever searched for, without even a single result.
does each wastegate type only fit one specific transporter model ? or/and one specific engine code ?
or are there wastegates which fit more than one transporter T5 1.9tdi ?
i live rural and my usual contacts have no answer.

I wasn't aware that any T5 TDi had a wastegate fitted! My understanding is that they all use variable-vane turbos, where the boost level is set by an actuator that controls the angle of the vanes. This may explain why you can't find a wastegate as such.

However, I believe some people incorrectly call the turbo boost actuator a "wastegate actuator", so perhaps this is where the confusion has come from?
