Hi everyone .

My first post on here .

I own a 2014 A6 3.0tdi and have had nothing but problems since I bought it a year ago.So far I have replaced the injectors and egr valve and oil cooler.

Now the turbo electronic actuator has packed in.I had already replaced the turbo with a reconditioned one and this has also failed with the same problem less then 2000 miles of use.

I have spoke to my mechanic who is an Indy specialist and he has advised me to get my old turbo reconditioned and a tutor replaced and set up but unfortunately the turbo special to I was recommended has said that he can’t do these turbos as he can’t get the pats for them .

Now with the prospect of having to fork out a over £5000 for a fitted turbo I am wandering if I can just remove  the actuator and replace it with a plug and play one ? Has anyone had experience with doing this themselves ?
