View Full Version : Turbo is being stubborn

So I took a stab at changing my blown K03 with my new k04 that I've had sitting in my house for just about a month now, and I've read quite a few DIYs on how to do it. I could not for the life of me get any of the bolts free to take the old turbo off. And I was working at it for a very long time.

Anyone have any good tips so I can try one more time before I just pay a mechanic?

Or even better, is anyone in Chicagoland that wants to help me on Sunday?

Drench with PB Blaster and let it sit overnight. You do not want to break a bolt off in the turbo housing. It is a PITA if that happens.

^His k03 I think is done for, so does not really matter. But yeah, soak well in PB Blaster and break out the old elbow grease. And upon installation of your k04, anti-seize is your freind...maybe. Don't want any bolts backing i=out now, do we!

Definitely let them soak in some penetrating oil. If you break them its no big deal they dont thread into the manifold, but rather the turbo. If you have a new turbo it should have come with an install kit which would include 3 new bolts. If not we have them available below.

As for the anti-seize you need a special type which is made for exhaust parts. We also have that.

i had to use a breaker bar for more leverage the first time I removed my k03.

Breaker bar will be used next time I give it a go, I just found it today...

as far as parts go, I'm already one step ahead of you Jason. All those parts from ECS were shipped to me 3 weeks ago

You can use Permatex anti-seize found in Auto Zone. It's rated for like 1600*F.
