HI, ive psoted on here before asking the tell tale signs of the dreaded turbo , on a dci laguna,.....
Well after 9000 miles and 7 months of the extremely loud whistling for the turbo , which renault assured me was not anything to be worried about. it went! 3 weeks later and 600 lighter, new turbo and cleansed hose pipes etc new high grade oil . all is well.
i would like to know form anyone suffering the same fate the best way to ensure it dosnt happen again! and since purchase the seems to be (to me) excess smoke under acceleration from rest and a strange groaning creaking noise under hard acceleration from rest from around 3000rpm to redline? id prefer help from these forums as they have been much more help and cheaper than seeing a renault dealer every month with a new noise!
