Title: Can I clean my turbo in situ?
Post by: mantasrb on 18:27, Sun 28 August 2011
hello all,

New to the '5 scene and so far loving it :D

Anyway, is there any method of cleaning to turbo in situ?  I took the turbo off my old mk3 golf diesel and cleaned it with carb cleaner and duck oil (too much carbon came out for my liking!!!)

Thanks in advance,

Jack

You could clean the exterior, there mounted in an easy to reach position compared to some cars.

If you wanted to do a really deep clean, for example removing the housings then you would be better removing the turbo from the car.

The turbo isn't that hard to remove, as long as the nuts are not too rusty!
