Any video of new/non rattling turbos off the car?
There is plenty of video on youtube of turbos with waste gate rattle, some of the best ones when they are off the car showing the amount of play in the actuator rod, and pivot points, and wastegate.
Does anyone have any video of a new/refurbished turbo? Just so I can compare?
I have a UK (so RHD) FBO 335i with a really loud rattle, but I can barely get a hand on the arm from underneath (not removed D/Ps yet though), and was going to attempt to adjust the actuator, but there is tonnes of play in the arm (when cold/off) and in the pivot. (No access from top becuase of steering on RHD)
I have lived with it for months now but it is doing my head in, and as I am holidaying withthe family in FL (disneyworld ) in April, this would be the ideal time to hand carry stuff back to the UK without import tax.
(BTW car is procede and wastgates already set to 50%)
EDIT: of course, as soon as I posted, I thought of a new search term, and found this:
new turbos dont seem much better!
