VNT Turbo Repair 2 turbos came in today, both had failed on a Hino J08E 500 Series Truck. Upon inspection it became obvious that the turbocharger had been repaired (which had been carried out as an unauthorised repair of a Garrett VNT Turbocharger using non-genuine components);We do not repair VNT turbochargers in our workshop, Garrett Turbo have a strict non repair policy on all of their VNT turbos and as a distributor of their turbos we are not authorised to repair. Genuine replacement parts for Garrett VNT turbochargers are not available and therefore a GENUINE authorised repair can not be carried out. These pics show the cause of failure
Garrett by Honeywell tests all of their turbos to ensure that no materials penetrate a “containment shroud” surrounding the turbocharger. A test to ensure safety. All Garrett Turbos go through this test, even in 1985. This recently found footage has never been shown to the public and demonstrates how much damage a turbo potentially could do if it is not engineered to contain a wheel burst properly. All Garrett Turbos are engineered not only to perform to create power, efficiency, and reliability but also for safety if this were ever to happen. Garrett performs these tests to make sure that this doesn’t happen!
