BMW 335i, LAZY ACTUATORS? A COMMON FAULT?
This BMW 335i came into the workshop after it flagged up an issue with the actuators. This model of car has an issue with the actuators becoming loose causing the turbo’s to become lazy. With a rolling road session it was shown that the power wasn’t being delivered until later on.
Removing the two turbo’s from the BMW 335i was an awful job with most of the engine bay needing to be stripped.
When the turbo’s and actuators where examined it was surprising to see how loose both actuators were.
They where sent off to our turbo guy for repair and returned looking brand spanking new 🙂
The next job was to refit them back from where they had come. This was as equally unpleasant as when they where removed but the end goal would be rewarding.
With fresh oil and a filter we carefully began the running in process for the turbo’s and the difference could be felt immediately. After a couple of runs on the rolling road we could see the power delivery was back to where is should originally have been and the bhp had even increased.
