wastegate rattle take out jb4 before?

I finally am getting the dreaded wastegate rattle.

I brought it in before but they said they couldn't hear it(before I have the jb4)

it is now very noticable I want to bring it in but I don't want to take out the JB4 before hand. Mainly cause I'm lazy and it's cold without a garage.

is it to big a risk to leave it in? or anyone want to come by the northside and i'll pay you to take it out lol

I'd say your really rolling the dice if you leave the JB4 in. I it states in the SIB "BMW NA will not provide warranty coverage to any Settlement Class Member’s vehicle
containing modifications or alterations to the turbocharger or its wastegates (software, hardware or otherwise), or evidencing other conditions not normally covered under the original New Vehicle/SAV Limited Warranty or applicable emissions warranty. "

I ended up taking it out and got it replaced already... Runs like a champ now but had to bring it back cause on the way home after picking it up coolant was spraying everywhere in the engine.

Time to order the DP and fmic

Good luck have you called BMW NA also to try and see if they'll still cover it?

I left my intake and charge pipe on and it wasn't an issue

doesnt hurt, they are probably calling trying to get them to cover it anyway. so might as well hit it from both ends. how many miles does yours have?
