Attention: Important notes on the installation of a turbocharger. In order to avoid installation errors, APM recommends having the goods installed only by a specialized workshop.
Repair the cause of the malfunction and damage to the old turbocharger. Before starting the installation, the following parts near the turbocharger must be checked for dirt and density.Discharge and supply lines on the turbocharger. The engine oil, oil filter, and air filter must be renewed when changing the turbocharger.
Before attaching the oil supply line, the turbocharger must be completely filled with clean engine oil through the oil inlet hole. The oil lines to the turbocharger and all flange and connection seals must also be replaced. With certain brands, the charge air cooler must also be replaced according to the installation instructions.Liquid sealants should never be used. After commissioning, check the tightness of all air, gas, and oil lines.
The air intake and exhaust system and the intercooler must be cleaned. Ensure that the system is free of chips, dirt, corrosion, oil, and other foreign bodies or substances. After installing the turbocharger, the engine must be restarted. Then let the engine idle for 30 seconds before applying a load. We draw your attention to the fact that warranty and/or liability claims against APM Autoteile GmbH cannot be considered if the turbochargers are installed without complying with the above installation instructions and this alone causes damage.
