    P0299 for the TSI engines, great video by Humble Mechanic

    A very good video on a "common" issue with the 2.0T TSI turbo engines.



    Also has excellent cameo appearance by VCDS-Mobile in there as well.

    Nice video, however, doesn't address the heart of the matter & which is a stupid design flaw!

    Turbo chargers changed due to P0299 code.......... is lack of experience in correcting an issue, verse just changing it with the same shit part!

    My favorite fail in the repair industry!

    FACE PALM!

    If you run into a turbo charger that exhibits this stupid condition, do the following in the car first!
    Do not change the turbo charger further being a moron wasting money!

    Cut the waste-gate rod close to the actuator air motor, than leaving about 13MM of rod.
    Remove air motor and bench....

    Now the rod swings down limp and can be threaded with a socket die in the car carefully.
    Now thread the other side on bench.

    Now that you have threaded both, cut the rod in the car about 10 MM with a straight air saw or manually & with a nut already on the threads to guide you and used as a reverse chase to clean the threads.

    Now install a nut on the air motor and in the car with actuator air motor unsecured still & install a coupling nut and tighten it, further shorting the distance by 2 MM approximately or until spring pull tension is achieved to seal the WG valve.

    Now tighten the jam nuts against the coupling nut.

    Takes about 15 minutes for a pro and about an hour for a guy that never did it.
    Parts add up to the hardware store or Wurth supplier + tools you should already have in your box or will soon add.

    The whole issue is really just a weak spring due to being in a high heat transition location for induced wear!

    If you don't do this with a new turbo charger & while it's still on the bench, you have my permission to consider yourself an idiot!

    I should add that the same can be achieved by slotting the mounting holes of the WG actuator air motor and pulling it back to make a tighter basic setting position. ( Works like 90% of the time )

    Amendment with walk on water action

    Now a cheap ass fix at a total of "30 seconds" is to add an external spring, from lever at charger; to a bracket of your choice & to stiffen the hold of the WG valve that is currently weak!

    A quick link to what a couplings nut is.....

    Just look at any old 1.8T had a threaded setting on the WG air motor .......just add one!

    Tried and true for over 100 repairs tested for saved turbo chargers and an enhancement for the guy who is into real mods at the race track!

    See now if I posted this in the "Whoretex" It would of been vacated because it would interfere with selling new parts for advertisers..........screw that!

    NostraJackAss Has Spoken!

    A quick review of sponsors .........?

    Still my favorite part of that video aforementioned, is the fact the wrong fault code is referenced in the beginning of it.
    When watching the other MK7 video he describes, the WG in that type turbo as a means of controlling boost lag instantly & when it isn't a VNT.

    Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taAF30GaVMk

    Otherwise for NON VNT WG :::::::
    FACT : A WG is used to control boost at peak boost being made first & by using boost in order to do it electronically switched ..........so I guess I am wondering where he got that from.

    Again see the sponsors.........

    Don't buy a new turbo for this condition and consider a universal WG air motor such as this as an example not endorsed seller.



    Drill two holes in old bracket once benched and set the tension.

    These springs are much stronger too, for guys that want to run higher boost levels for the race track competition or valid stock setups.

    Can be found for under 50 USD on the cheap........
