  1. This week I had to remove my Charger for a service and the only guide I could find online was the Matey Matey on, which was very informative but not enough pictures as I find it easier to to understand than a load of paragraphs


    So I thought why not make my own guide for future reference and for other people to benefit from


    Right so I started off


    Pop open the bonnet and remove the drivers side Headlight and front grill






    Next remove the airbox/airfilter inlet pipe by 2x hex boltstop and bottom





    Next remove the radiator cover





    Next remove the 4 hex bolts on the side of the charger, theyre what hold the charger in the bracket





    Next remove the black plastic cover that sits on top of the charger by these 2 bolts





    Then on the right hand side of the charger there is a black plastic box ( the silencer box ), undo the jubilee clips and pull off the intercooler pipe





    Just underneath the black box you will see an oil feed cable, should be a silver braided hose , undo this and place up by the oil cap so I doesn't drip oil anywhere, there is also another oil feed pipe on the bottom of the charger on the side where the airbox was


    Unfortunately I didn't take any pics when I undid these but you can clearly see them



    Next to do is loosen and remove the tensioner bolt, and I tapped it off with a rubber mallet





    Then slip the belt off the charger pulley





    Next remove this pipe from the charger, its quite stiff so give it a good wiggle and a pull, I slipped a very small flathead screwdriver in and lightly levered it out





    Next remove the oil dipstick and then the 4 bolts holding the black silencer box together, I found this quite difficult as the bottom 2 bolts wernt easy to get to, make sure you get a spanner on there good and firm and don't round the bolts off, just slowly crack the bolts





    Next split the black box





    Remove the one half of the black box out of the bay and then remove this bolt holding the other half in








    Then you can access the last 2 hex bolts holding the charger in on the bracket






    Then remove the last bolt on the charger support bracket, watch the metal 3 holed bracket doesn't fall down





    Then I used a crowbar to slowly loosen the charger from the bracket, then with a bit of a wiggle the charger should lift out












    Now theres a big empty gap where your charger used to be, get the Gunk out and start scrubbing


    Then send your charger off to Matt at OCD for an overhaul and service





    And there you have it, I hope this helps people out in the future...Good Luck Steve

  4. Hi guys I have just purchased a Corrado G60, 112,000 miles, tax and tested till next April 2015, for the grand sum of £800


    It does have a few minor problems that need addressing, llike bodywork as there is laquer peel on both doors and bonnet and bumper have stone chips and paint flaking off, but have a sprayer friend who can sort it, I have another set of wheels to go as tose horrid ones have to go


    I plan on sending the charger to OCD to get serviced as there is no history of it


    What u think
