    Hi! I've been driving a second hand copen for close to a year and after my recent servicing, I've been told by the mechanic that my turbo is "leaking" so I'm wondering if anyone has a good workshop in Singapore to recommend for me to check it out and see what can be done?

    During a previous visit to another workshop (due to a minor accident), I was told that my turbo has been mod before and I think it was done badly and the accident caused some damage which may be related to this current problem.

    Also, I'm thinking of changing the seat belt guide. I'm not too sure if it's because the previous one fixed by the previous owner is not suitable or what, the seat belt on the passenger side does not retract smoothly. Anyone knows what might be causing this? Should I change the guide? Where can I purchase suitable ones?

    Hope you kind souls can help me out! Thanks!!! ;)

    I was introduced to this shop by fellow Copen owners. You might want to try them out.

    Come for the meet up this Saturday, I am sure the others can advise you.

    hopefully soon a new grey copen!
    i think we all have this problem - ours just hang about like a long noose - making rattling noises etc.

    some have tried spraying it with lotion with success

    welcome anyway and hope you get to go to the meet up - it looks fabulous

    Hi guys! Thanks for the help! Sorry I'm unable to meet up due to work but I did managed to make a trip down to DKC (thanks joeleow for the recommendation!) and they managed to solve the turbo problem temporary but I'm told that the turbo has been changed by the previous owner and will not pass inspection! Also, the work done is quite messy so I might have to change the turbo :-(:)-(:)-(( but I'll have to find the down pipe for it first. Sigh...

    Hi! Is the Copen group still active in Singapore? Just got a copen here! Can't seem to find any owner's group!

    Cheers!

    There is a really good tutorial on here somewhere on an easy fix to it.

    I did it and it makes a fantastic difference ,involves removing the seat belt guides behind the seat and sanding them ,it really does work and took me about 30 mins to do both sides.
