Turbo actuator

Hi
My local garage has diagnosed a turbo actuator fault on my 120 1.6 diesel engine. They are struggling to get the part from our local fiat dealer who say they can't get hold of one due to warehouse/supply chain issues. Is anyone else struggling to get parts via fiat or is this likely a local dealer issue? Not doubting what my garage has said as have never had a problem with them.

Re: Turbo actuator

Covid is no doubt having an effect..

Do you have the part number?
A quick search on the web.. or a call to Grays of Warwick might move things along

Re: Turbo actuator

Grays have said it comes as part of the turbo and quoted 976!

Worth a call to a specialist then..

Even if they charge double for a 120 part.. its still going to work out cheaper


Has it failed..or just worn?

Re: Turbo actuator

As you were saying.. fiat just list as an assembly

https://www.fiatdalys.lt/en/catalog/.../supercharging

But hunting around should get down to the actual component manufacturers

Do let us know what you find..

Probably same as bravo and punto

Plenty of old bravos around now

Re: Turbo actuator

I've asked my garage to replace the whole unit, they are going to see if they can find a cheaper option than main dealer. I guess that at least the whole unit being replaced means the turbo will be sorted. On thinking back I had noticed that the car didn't seem to pull as sharply in sixth gear on motorways when accelerating for lane changes but put it down to my imagination at the time. Will update when I know more.

Re: Turbo actuator

Any other brands use the 1.6..?

I know 1.3 parts from vauxhall are cheaper than FIAT
