in the by-pass diaphragm, the wastegate unit or in the control function for the turbo. This can give rise to low boost pressure, reduced performance and
diagnostic trouble codes being generated. To avoid the turbo being replaced unnecessarily a more thorough analysis needs to be performed, in
accordance with the following.
