The turbo on my 1.9 dti is still missing...I am looking at the area around the wastegate actuator and would like some clarification if poss.
First, when disconnected from the actuator the (I presume) wastegate opens and closes by hand totally freely.
The rod of the wastegate actuator itself pulls out but only under great force.
The pipe that fits into the actuator sucks but no great suction at all...if it needs to push the actuators rod out
shouldn't it blow not suck?
I put some modelling clay around the wastegate pivot and took it for a spin...the clay seemed undisturbed on return so the problem appears gate side of turbo.
I am totally confused and would really appreciate any suggestions
