    You dropped the E clip? If that's the case you'll just run waste gate pressure and no more. Get a replacement clip.

    Whatever you do DO NOT go to the dealership...I lost my e-clip somehow a month or so ago and I went to the dealership and they told me you cannot buy a replacement clip, you have to purchase a whole new turbo/wastegate set up. Not only that I had to speak to 3 different techs before anyone even knew what it was that I needed... So anyway just go to your local home depot or hardware store and buy an e-clip. They will come in several sizes and shapes so try and get the more rounded ones and I cant remember exactly what size you need but just get a couple of different sizes and try them out I think they only cost like 20 cents or so.
