Audi 2015 A3 1.8 TFSI 8VA Turbocharger Boost Control / Waste actuator


New member
Hi all,

I've had a fault come up on my A3 and looks like it's to do with the turbocharger & waste actuator (mentioned shaft bushes worn). Mechanic has suggested the turbocharger will need replacing. Mechanic has been great in the past, but not sure Euro/Audi's are his favourite/specialty so just wondering if there are any alternative options/suggestions/approahces people might have, or if it does just need replacing, how much would I be looking at to buy one?
