Turbo Heatshield Replacement

Postby dermotbell » Thu 08.09.2016, 18:15

Hi all,
My heatshield is missing! It used to sit on top of turbo and the top bolt bracket was not "formally" attached as the shield had cracked at the attachment. It sat there happily for at least 7 years and in my early days of ownership was quite convenient for exercising the waste gate rod. My heavy right foot soon ensured this was no longer required :-D
I cannot find anyone selling one online, anyone know where I can get one?
PS am I right in that had only one bolt to attach it?

Thanks Grampy,
I've been all over eBay and other sites with no joy :(

No. Top section had 3 bolts. Top one through bracket is pretty obvious, other two, shared with the lower heat shield, go into the turbo wastegate manifold. One goes horizontal from front, other horizontal from O/S but a right bar steward to line up both heatshields and find the hole with the powersteering pump mounting in the way.

My turbo has a bit of narcolepsy so while I'm investigating the lower heatshield has been in a box in my garage and I've run without the top heatshield from time to time and haven't see any sign that anything is getting unduly hot, perhaps it might in a hot country.

Top heatshield is part A100E6022S & lower is A100E6023S if that's any help in tracking them down. DVB are currently listing the Cat heatshield on ebay as A100E6022S but it's actually A100E6027F so they've got that wrong.

Leave me alone, I think I know what I'm doing.

Thanks Phil,
A part number might help in tracking one down, if anyone has replaced their stock turbo and don't require the heatshield please let me know.
I currently have a very agricultural tempo fix from an old battered heatshield from another car, too embarrassing for a picture :|
