Hi, I hope that someone out there maybe able to help me,

I have an 2004 on an '04' plate Audi a3 2.0 tdi 140, and I am having trouble with what I was told by jabbasport and custom codes is the turbo, it is making a wining noise when I get to about 2000 rpm, the noise used to go when you got abit faster but now it is there most of the time, I have asked Audi if they know of ne problems with the turbo's, and they state that they are not aware of any,

But I have been told by a couple of people that it is a known problem with the turbo that the bears get burnt out,

So I am writing to see if anyone else has had a problem or knows of anyone who has, with the turbo on there tdi,

I look forward to hear from you,

Many thanx[/SIZE]

Hi, I've got the same year car and engine. How many miles has yours done? I'm on 92,000 and i may have the same problem but it sounds more like air. Did you mean the sound was from your turbo bearings?
