Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. Ask the dealer to try cleaning the turbo vanes first. There is a cleaning kit/procedure for doing that. Then if the issue continues, you will have to replaced the turbocharger. My dealer charges about 2 hours to do this cleaning procedure. Worth a try at least.
