I liked your write up. Was going to do one myself till I found this today. I have fitted 3 now, one just last week for a friend. I would only add the the oil feed pipe should either be replaced with a new one or blasted through with compressed air ( both directions) to make sure it is clear. I also drilled out the banjo bole to 3mm. Also connect all up but don't bolt the manifold to the head, start it up for about 30 seconds. This way the Turbo get fully primed without it spinning up. On the intercooler, I welded mine up. I am wondering whether it would be worth doing an exchange welding service. I will have to think about it.bugone said:Hi,
I've recently had the whail of death for my turbo. Mine is a 2005 DCi 136 SVE.
Instead of stumping up a small fortune to Nissan, I decided to replace it myself. I hope this helps others in the same position.
Here is how I did it.....
Disclaimer: By making this guide, by no means do I state this is either the best way, or the correct way.
This is how I managed to change mine, and figured out what I believe to be the easiest way to change it. I accept no liability if you attempt to change your turbo yourself, and things go wrong. If you are not confident underneath a bonnet, this is likely not a DIY job. As an estimate, this will take 5 hours to remove, and 5 hours to refit.
