The turbo in my Dads 307 SW 1.6HDi 110 recently died and I'm currently in the look out for a recon/second hand one to get it back on the road.
I seem to find only the 2.0l turbo, will these fit on a 1.6 or not.
Or are there any other turbo that will for the car.

Its a 54 plate :)

Thanks in advance!

They used KKK and Garrett turbos in the 307. It is a Garrett gt1544v on the 1.6. I have just replaced one, was told the 2.0 garrett would not fit.

Make sure you clear the cause of the problem or the new one will blow very quickly. Mine went because of blocked oil feed and return pipes, which I understand is a very common cause. These pipes are a main dealer only part and come in at around £60-£70.

Cool thanks, Yeah it was a blocked return oil feed :/
How much would i be looking at for a 2nd hand one.

Basically just needs to get working for a short time.

At the absolute minimum you should do an oil/filter change and fit a new turbo feed pipe when replacing a turbo.

Really you also should be making sure there is sufficient oil flow through the feed pipe to the turbo, these turbo's don't usually just 'fail'.

If you are feeling confident you can buy a complete rebuild kit for little over £120 which includes everything you need to basically rebuild the cartridge (including the shaft and wheels) which is perfect unless you have housing damage (unlikely). The cheaper option if your shaft and wheels are in good condition (no cavitation etc) then you can just buy a service kit.

If you DO choose to do it yourself, take care to thoroughly clean the veins so they're free moving, it makes you car feel sexy again.

When I was looking it seemed to be around £200 for a second hand unit on ebay and £350 upwards for a warranted recon unit.
When I changed it I also took off the sump, the oil pick up had quite a few little alloy shavings in it. I put in clean oil and a new filter, ran it for half hour on idle and changed the oil again.

Coolio, where can a rebuild pack be bought from?
I have opened the turbo up, there seems to be no wear, I have got hold oh a new filter, oil etc and oil pipes.

Thanks

i would do what Phil said if you confident in getting your hands stuck into the turbo rebuild kit its worth doing as its a lot cheaper that a new or 2nd hand turbo, ive been thinking of getting some blown turbos from a scrap yard and giving it ago to rebuild some as ive been told its not all that hard to do so am gonna give it ago :D

I can recommend a couple of things.

1. A nice tight set of latex gloves, change often to keep your hands clean
2. Clean working area
3. Keep components as clean as possible
4. Good quality assembly lube/oil, it's essential
5. Keep to a methodical disassembly, it will help reassembly later on
6. Always do an oil and filter change (old oil, new turbo... not a good mix!)
7. Always change the oil feed pipe
8. Crank the car over to get oil to the turbo before you start it

Optional, the kit should by rights be balanced, for a nominal fee you can get them balanced, some think it's a good idea to make it last longer, personally I didn't bother.

I'm by no means an expert, but I've seen poor rebuilds fail quite quickly because it was slung together and was run without oil, and had no assembly lube.

Hi All,

very pleased to read this thread as my turbo on my 307 1.6 HDI 110bhp has gone and its waiting at a peugeot specialists in bristol for me to decide what to do, because i dont want to spend 1000 replacing it!!!

basically....i found the transitpartsuk EBAY offer of 320 for a new turbo....and they said they will sell the kit with oil feed pipe , pick up pipe and banjo bolts for 410....is this a good deal..???

but the mechanic in bristol is saying it will cost 450 (inc. VAT to fit...) totalling 850...(i have aa breakdown repair cover so they are paying 450 towards it.....

but is it possible to find a cheaper option???

can i buy the rebuild kit for 120 and ask the mechanic to just rebuild the current one???? is this cost effective...?

thanks everyone

cheaper option fit it your self easy on the 1.6 as its on top at the front unlike my 2.0 which is underneath at the back of the engine above the engine mount i got charged 500 and its a hell of a lot harder on the 2.0

does anyone know if you actually have to replace the 'oil feed supply, pick up pipe and banjo bolts'

or can you just clean the ones that are already there?
