Hi Guys
X reg A170cdi with a lack of power, starts and drives fine with no warning lights coming on. Had diagnostics done at MB and came back with injector 2 leaking inside (MB words) and a sticking turbo actuator.
Q. would injector cleaner help or should I bite the bullet and fit a new injector?
Also is there a way of freeing or lubing the turbo actuator?
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Colin.

Injectors are a common fault!!

At a guess on the turbo, i would try a turbo vac transducer first, there more common on a A,class!!

Is the transducer an easy job?

Couple of pipes and a electric plug, thats all!!

Follow the rubber tube of the waste gate and your find the transducer!!
