    Help replacing 1.4 turbocharger coolant return pipe as it is leaking.

    Hi all, I have a quick question ?. I have searched the forums but I could not find any info on this !! Is it possible to replace the turbochargers coolant return pipe with out taking the whole turbo out i.e. Headers... Or can it be done with just removing the cartridge!!,... Any help would great as mine seems to be leaking from where the metal sleeve joins the rubber hose.??.. It seems to be a very expensive exercise for a 30 dollar part, if i have to pull the whole turbo out .. for a coolant hose, which will always need replacing eventually.. It is a real bad design ..

    TIA

    No advice because it appears you have a part failure that others on the forum have never experienced.

    That would be great Little Dan.. The only 2 ways I see it is that you have pull the whole turbo off from headers.. Or you may be able to just to remove the turbo cartridge and with a little bit of swearing and patients you should be able to do it. As you have to get to the back cartridge to unscrew and replace it..

    The dealer fixed ours under warranty and the whole turbo had to come out. Which was good, because they found a crack in the turbo so we got a new turbo as well. Not to mention a new CAT since a bolt broke off and messed up the CAT.

    I was afraid someone would say this... GMH for a crap design.. Does anyone know what is all the actual parts list I would need to do this ??.. If the headers come off i have replace the bolts and the gasket, seals on the coolant and oil pipes. Is there a link on here that actually explains in detail,as i cant find it. TIA

    I did replace my turbo coolant pipes on 2013 cruze. GM Parts were:
    55568031 pipe,
    55567067 pipe,
    55572127 pipe fitting (2 required). All were on Amazon.
    I also needed 55565351 clamp between turbo and cat. (mine broke).
    Pipes can be replaced without removing turbo or header. I removed cat and cat bracket from engine. It wasn't a real bad job. I did break cat to exhaust studs during removal. I pressed broken studs out and am using 8mm bolts instead.
    I did repair because I had read on this forum that someones dealer wanted around $700 to fix this. I asked my dealer for an estimate on the repair. Holz GMC in Watertown, WI told me around $250 including parts.

    I had a coolant leak before, but it didn't affect the turbo.
    Probably because the coolant leak caused the turbo to overheat, your turbo ended up dying.

    Coolant leaks does more than just destroy the turbo.
    Just be glad there's no gasket leak!
