Default Looking for turbo swap procedure.

Hey everyone. Ive done a search but can't seem to find a detailed set of instructions for swapping a turbo on the Passat.

Can anyone help me out. I would really appreciate it.

I was driving the car no indicators whatsoever except for the GPL and engine light. Loss of power, took it to the dealer they said engine oil was low and seized turbo. Nice.

does your vehicle not qualify for the Dieselgate extended warranty?

I agree. I was told that for 2013 models until 2023 or 120k miles turbocharger was under warranty.

WAS the oil low??..More than likely the dealer is throwing a curve ball again to escape having to do a warranty repair.. Very common! Cover all your bases when taking a car to a dealer or any shop.. make sure oil is good, coolant not low...fuel receipts ...etc..and in some cases pull a fuel and oil sample with them witnessing...
