After looking at graemwelch's excellent post on cracking open a Garrett VV turbo (as fitted to my TDCi), I decided to take mine apart after I suffered the the dreaded blinking glow light problem. The turbo was thick with soot especially in the vicinity of the variable vanes.
However, can one of you experts out there tell me if the circular thin metal spacer (same diameter as the vanes) fitted on the vane shaft (turbo end) between the vanes and the turdo body is supposed to be a very loose fitting because the one fitted to my unit certainly is, the shaft though runs freely

would it not make sense to get a service kit? new seals and all that or have you already got one?

I'd be very wary of taking a turbo apart and replacing components unless I had access to a balancer.

if i remember right they aren't particularly tight. it sits on 3 round guides that are very easy to lose if your not carful, as long as you have those in place then it should be held correctly. take a picture if you can it will help
