Wastegate Frozen Tight C7 2004 46,000 Miles
« on: October 01, 2019, 04:46:29 PM »
Folks,

Those of you who have been following my 102-07 code, I finally got time to work on removing my turbocharger.  Took my time and 5 hours later had it on my hands.  Took it to a welding shop in an attempt to unfreeze the wastegate! 

No luck, sucker was glowing but no go on the lever, which fell off when I applied force to try to move it.

Anyway, going to Foley Caterpillar in Kansas City for a new or rebuilt turbo and assorted parts to reinstall turbo.

I see eBay has turbochargers cheap, but I am leery about them.  Still saving dollars doing it myself.  I would not have tried it if not for the helpful info from this site and Dave A.

Thanks to all!
