Attention: Important notes on the installation of a turbocharger. To avoid installation errors, APM recommends having the goods installed only by a specialized workshop. Repair the cause of 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. Possibly a soot particle filter. The engine oil, oil filter, and air filter must be replaced 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 gaskets and connectors 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 intake and exhaust air 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.
Please note that warranty and/or liability claims against APM Autoteile GmbH cannot be considered if turbochargers are installed without following the above installation instructions and this alone causes damage.
