Infamous Loss of Power 335d - DIY Turbo Actuator, Pressure Converters, Hoses?

Hey guys, I have been reading some posts with similar symptoms and it seems there are 3 common faults: Loose Hoses or clips, Turbo pressure converter, or Turbo Actuator, or in the worst care, the whole turbo!? I have found one DIY replacement of red hose tutorial, but I wanted to find out, if we can make the other too or even more to create the whole DIY manual where possible, since I can see, and it was also mine case, that there is usually no faults on diagnostics, which is embarrassing to bmw IMHO.

Another thing is to create the list about what can be detected by bmw diagnostics and what can't since technician said that if it is failing the turbo, they have no means to diagnose it, as it can behave differently under the pressure, which is embarrassing too, as I believe engine or ecu should record it and later send this failure into diagnostics, and I really want to send some email about this to BMW AG.


1. Turbo Red Hose:

I wanted to find out, if I can possibly use any general high pressure silicone hose with diameter 90mm, or I have to buy OEM part from BMW?

2.Turbo Pressure Converter
Here is some partial tutorial about, but I would like to know, where to find it, how to get it out, etc, as it would be really great, since when I opened the bonnet, I was not sure how to even remove the engine cover...

it seems that this on this topic, and also it says that diagnostics would record the fault actuator? http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=601015

Martin, it would be a good idea to also post this in the UK section. They have much more experience with these issues, and I think you will get more responses there. I know I have read a thread about the red hose and its replacement, so I'm pretty sure that's the best place to post this.

this is pressure converter/actuator pierburg that is used on bmw models, also 335d, and this guy show you that you can recondition one on your own without buying it.
people are reconditioning even turbos and other things, so as you can see you can save money on many things.
