Turbo bypass valve on Audi/VW TFSi engines


Turbo bypass valve failure on some Audi, VW, Seat and Skoda engines is unfortunately a common problem.

Luckily here at Russell Automotive Centre London’s Leading Audi, VW, Seat and Skoda Specialist we have seen it many times before and are very familiar with performing the correct diagnosis.

Old bypass valve still installed
Old bypass valve with split diaphragm
Old and new bypass valves, new valve is now modified

What can be seen when the valve is removed is a split diaphragm. (See picture)

When replacing this valve the genuine parts used are of a modified type and will not give you the same trouble. (See picture)

For correct diagnosis of this type of problem and all other problems remember that Russell Automotive Centre, London’s Leading Audi, VW, Seat and Skoda Specialist is London’s only Award Winning Specialist with the same fully up to date diagnosis equipment as a main dealer and our labour rates are up to 50% cheaper.

Don’t waste your time and money on an incorrect diagnosis come to Russell Automotive Centre, London’s Leading Audi, VW, Seat and Skoda Specialist.
