Hey guys quick question, can i reuse the copper washers for the coolant and oil plugs on the turbo when swapping them to the correct position? Not sure if I was given enough washers from HPA for the plugs.

Nice didn't think so....gonna have to order more. I also didn't have thick and thin washers...they are all the same thickness....I ordered the thick one but couldn't find a part number for the thin washer.....

Really bummed out to be doing this *again* ... had a small coolant leak after my F23T install... so I just finished pulling the turbo out so I can clean everything and start again.

While I was pulling it out, though, I noticed that I neglected to reconnect to the oil-supply-line bracket. It looks like it's supposed to connect right below the DV -- but for the life of me I can not see how to do that without bending the hard-line.

It's a brand-new supply line -- I replaced it and the return line when I did the F23T install (had an oil leak on my K04 -- figured I'd just do new lines on this one). Is it normal to have to "massage" the line into place?

Well to answer my own question -- bending the line gently here and there worked great, so is it normal to have to? Who knows. Can you? Absolutely.

It's also worth nothing that those hex-head bolts on the Oil Return line are total garbage. Swapped mine out for standard bolts. They're M6x1.0x16, and I used split-lock washers. Snugged them down much tighter than I felt comfortable with on those hex-head bolts (considering I snapped one off a couple months back)... and *finally* oil-leak free!

I had a persistent fine-oil-mist for as long as I've been K04 because of those friggen bolts. Glad to finally be rid of them.

I'll make sure to do this when I'm finally able to install the k04 as well then. I certainly don't want oil leak issues!

Might want to add that the 5 bolts that hold the turbo are actually 12 mm...at least mine were from my cts kit.

Yup and also put that coolant line that runs behind the engine along with the coilpack harness aside..will save you A TON of effort and it's all just one 2 clamps and a connector.

so are these washers correct? the thick washer next to turbo and skinny next to banjo bolt? this is the bolt facing the firewall (coolant).

Thumbs up

Thank You for this Post, using it to remove the turbo from the 2.0 TSI in my Tiguan.
