Unhappy Can the turbo be repaired?

A friend of mine owns a Skoda 1.9 TDI (Rider) and his mechanic (he's been doing his cars for the last 15 yrs) has told him that the turbo has started leaking as in started taking oil. I was just wondering whether is it possible to repair the turbo or it has to be replaced only?

A new turbo in the Spares Market costs around 45 K, he hasn't even gone to the Skoda Authorised Workshop yet.

Is it really worth shelling out that kind of money and if not then what will be reprecussions??

Yes turbo be repaired, give it a good turbo repair shop. should cost you around 3000/- .
All the bearing seals are replaced and the CHAR assembly is balanced after that.You should get Garnette after rebuild.
Skoda use KKK turbos.

I called up their distributor here and they do not have it for Skoda 1.9 TDI yet. However i spoke to a distributor who imports and sells it to the various retailers and as per him it is available with him for Rs. 38,000/- plus taxes. Have told my friend about the same and he has to take a cll now!!

I meant for repairs if at all the turbo needs one, cause the Bangalore dealer does the repair for around that much for those turbos.
The price quoted for Imported turbo is same as skoda prices which is too high, Bombay [opera house] dealers [not skoda but car parts guys] import and sell the turbo for around 25K all inclusive.
The 1.9TDI uses a K03, the petrol 1.8L uses a K03S[petrol specific turbo internals].So when you ask for skoda turbo the prices usually goes up [you know what I mean].

I don't think TEL officially deals with KKK products. Skoda buys the turbos from KKK directly, whereas TEL manufactures turbos under licence from KKK for Tata/Mahindra/GM etc.

The 1.9TDI uses a KP39, afaik, which is a lot smaller. The Indian RSs come with a K03, while some of the higher power 1.8T engines abroad come with the K03S.

TEL services KKK Turbos, I know for sure.Yes I know The 150 BHP version of the petrol engine uses K03. When importing turbos is good to know thing.
Yes my bad the 1.9L diesel uses KP39.

Default Leaky Turbo. Any Repair centres in Kerala?

My Figo's Turbo seems to be slightly leaking oil. Does anyone have any idea of a place that specializes in repairing Turbos. And do you guys suggest a repair or replace?

Can you see the oil leak??
Is it an external leak or is your turbo leaking oil internally making it burn the oil?
Finding a Turbo repairing specialist in Trivandrum could be a pain.

Cant see any major leak outside except for a slight blackish color around the connection of the turbo.

Should i be seeing excessively high black smoke always? How do i actually cnfirm their findings of a leaky turbo? Just to be sure before i plunge into a costly repair or replacement.

Turbo Energy Limited repairs turbos, KKKs too, but only if it is in a repairable condition. Else they simply ask to buy a new one.
Couple of years back, my Indigo's turbo was consuming oil and my mechanic asked me to take the turbo to the T E L service centre. They inspected it and said that it was repairable. The cost of repairs was a bit high though, and the cost of a new turbo was just three thousand more than the cost of repairs. So I got a new unit.
