Hi, we have a 2015 1.6 cdti se on which the turbo has failed and the warranty company are not accepting claim as report says caused by low oil pressure / oil starvation issue. ( this is the report from Midland Turbo ) where the turbo was sent.
i have the car has been serviced iaw schedules and was last serviced only 1300 miles ago so relatively new oil.
they have come to this conclusion without checking the feed pipe etc.
i have put a boroscope through the feed pipe and seperated it and checked filter both are spotlessly clean.
looking on the internet seems to be a few 2015 models suffered from turbo issues.
is this a known fault ?

Unfortunately many third party warranty companies T&C's are so tightly written they will find a way out of pretty well any major claim, have you owned the car for more than six months?

Tell me about it -- have gone through this with a previous car -- warranty not worth paper it's written on but will gladly push it when selling

A lot of turbo problems are caused by driving off straight away on a stone cold engine -- and don't forget the warm up proceedure before driving off and the cooling down proceedure before switching the engine off after a run
