Well our 2007 sedona 2.9 CRDI with 120.000 miles on it decided it wanted to be part of the "Red Arrows" display team yesterday, Blew the turbo, then dumped half the contents of the sump through it!!!!!!!!!

Smoke was incredable........ covered both lanes of the dual carriageway, Thankfully my wife pulled over before the sump ran dry.............

Anyone had any experience with blown turbos on new shape model???

Anyone know best place to get a new/recon turbo??

Update
Had to get a new turbo as no one could repair or recon it........! got it from Midland Turbo for £590 +VAT, delivered the next day.
All fitted and intercooler and induction pipwork cleaned out,
Cant believe the difference, turbo must have been slowly dying, the bus has so much extra power now.
Turbo had a broken impeller shaft.
