Re: *SORTED NOW* Turbo and oil return orientation. 1.6td jx.

Now sorted!

The end of the return pipe with the S bend goes to the sump and the other end goes to the turbo. Had to rotate the turbo housing about 10mm to get a good fit.

Torque setting for JX manifold studs and nuts.

Hello, could anyone advise me the correct torque measurement for the manifold studs(fitted to cylinder head)on my 1.6TD? And also once the studs are in, what is the correct torque for the nuts that secure the manifold to the cylinder head?

Many thanks,

Rob.

Re: Replacement Turbo options.

Cheers, if I do the rebuild myself would the turbo need to be balanced after it’s done?

Re: Replacement Turbo options.

Cheers I’m hoping the JX goes a while longer, but it’s good to know if I’m investing in a decent turbo.

Re: Heater always on!

Valve replaced with a new one. Much better now but not perfect. I’ll have a look at the flaps in the heater module.


Thanks everyone.
