Finding a turbocharger

If the turbocharger needs to be exchanged, it is important to find a spare part that is fittings exactly so that the interplay of all components and the operation of the engine function without interference. The most important clue is the number of the turbocharger. It can be found out in two different ways. Either directly at the turbocharger or with the motor vehicle key number and if necessary some additional information.

The easiest solution: Determination of the number of the turbocharger on the type label

Every turbocharger has a type label which is attached to the housing on the outside. Depending on whether the turbocharger comes directly from the vehicle manufacturer or if it was bought on the accessory market, the type label can look a little different. However, in any case it provides the essential information. The serial number of the turbocharger is particularly important but one should also note down the customers or Garrett ® part number, if indicated. These details help us to find the appropriate spare part.

Determine the vehicle type with the help of the key number

If your turbocharger is still obstructed in the vehicle, you don't have to remove it to read the type label. In this case, the number of the turbocharger can also be determined with the so-called motor vehicle key number.

The motor vehicle key number is in the vehicle registration certificate at the positions 2 and 3 or also in the admittance certificate at the positions 2. 1 and 2. 2. The key number indicates only the vehicle type, though. But this usually is enough to the correct number of the turbocharger. In some cases, though, we still need to know the engine code and the pollutant class in accordance with EURONORM.

Important additional information: Engine code and pollutant class

The engine code is relevant for all vehicles from VW. You can find it in the service booklet or, if it is not available at the moment, near the engine or trunk. In the case of an emergency of course we like to help with the search!

The pollutant class according to the EU exhaust norm also can help to find the right number of the turbocharger and thus also the right spare part. It can very easily be read using the red, yellow or green waste gas badge. If no such badge was allocated, a look into on the vehicle registration certificate or the admittance certificate can help.
