I'm still shocked by your luck with finding that Jordan, most of us would have found the new charger the day the old one returned from being refurb'd!!... :)

I have a penchant for locating things 😎 but yes, luck played a part indeed! Glad I phoned to get a diagnosis first

The charger will be getting replaced next weekend, I have managed to get access to a proper walnut blaster through a friend of a friend... so should be able to get the ports nice and thoroughly cleaned rather than what we did last time.

Repeating tasks has its advantages

So even with the charger being new, I don't know how old it is and how long the oil has sat there, I have some new oil so.... removed the 3/16" plug and drained the oil:



Filled the oil until it dripped out:



Put the new fill/drain plug in along with the new o ring it comes with:



Once the other charger is off, will likely swap the dowels to resolve the damaged ones on this. Hopefully come Saturday afternoon the charger will be whisper quiet on idle and the car will be a little louder...

The old oil looked OK? Did it smell OK?

Looked and smelled fine, but took about 5 minutes to do and once I Emptied it out no point putting the old stuff back in when I have brand new, well I didn't think so anyway...

Is there only oil at one end on these superchargers? When I serviced the supercharged Mini that unit has an oil filled gearbox at both ends.

Another split update, really needs back tracking to the old version without the limitation 🙄

Part 1

Another fairly sizeable update....

Charger came off again, started getting it out:



Can see the Mahle air con rad with intake removed:



Continued with the removal:





Until it was only lifting it out to be done:



Lifted out:



Both chargers, removed the snout as easy to swap them rather than faffing around with the pulley itself:



When separating there's residual sealant:



Easily solved:





Light smear of rtv when reassembling:



Then it was onto the issue of the new charger, which you can see in the above picture, damaged dowels... took a long time to sort but was obviously a necessity:

Heated them:



Twisted them out:



The damaged ones were Drilled out and pulled, they fit back in nicely

New one all ready to go, whilst old one was stripped:



A comparison of rotor wear, old:





New:

Part 2

The PCV system is readily accessible with the charger off, so thought may as well change the serviceable part whilst in there:



Pulled them out:









Testing the old one they seemed fine:

XFR PCV Diaphragm

New one ready to go:



The o rings for the metal connector for the water pipe were a little worse for wear:





Old vs new:



New fitted:





Replaced the throttle body gasket:



Replaced the Valley pipe, and then obviously refitting was the next order, and, the start up and moment of truth:


All running, no issues and the clunking has gone! Success.

Closed the bonnet to end the saga:



Now onto the next project, exhaust....

New exhaust:



Old removed and shows the new pipes matching the old:



Exhaust fitted:






And here it is on a cold start up:


Happy with the outcome all round
