BMW Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
The book time ideally is 5-6hours at least.so you maybe looking at a £200-£300 labor without turbo,but you should really gather quotes locally.as all garages tend to charge differant rates...but time doesnt take into any problems that come along ie: stripped/snapped bolts etc...it should be straight replacement ..but what i would say is include with the new turbo or reconditioned turbo..aquire the feed & return oil lines..if you dont do them and thats what caused the intial problem then any new turbo you put on will go the same way very quickly..you should also once the turbo has been fitted require a full oil change and filter change..I do hope this helps
The Turbo has two lines to it..to allow the turbo centre core to be lubricated by engine oil..so you have a feed oil line to it at the top and a return line which return the oil back to the sump...if those arent replaced at the same time it could invalidate any warranty the new turbo comes with...if you cant them locally anywhere else or come with the new turbo? you likely need to aquire them via the BMW dealer itself im afraid...
