And they probably don't even know what it's for if they can find it! Malfunction of this valve will shorten the life of the unit which should have at least been cleaned with the inlet passages !

At the mileage you have done, I would, should there be a next time GHY!, buy a new Garrett turbo from Speedways at about 600 and have the job done by a good independent. Quite frankly it's pretty basis "Meccano type" stuff and you should save at least 600!
Thanks for the info - it shows on the invoice as "Ex Turbo " at 562.81. Is that an exchange unit?
Is it the mileage which means that I am not eligible?
