PLEASE HELP ! turbo blown ?????

hey guys i am in need of help in a big way , today while driving to work i think i killed my turbo . i was movin pretty good then a weird wooosh sound then white smoke from exaust and the clakking sound under the hood . i pulled over and shut it off right away . then opened the hood and started it again and the clakking was coming from the turbo area . so i unplugged the harness at the turbo and the clakking and smoke stopped . does anyone know what this could be and if it is the turbo how hard is it to pull off and install a new one for a diesel rookie like me .

they are a real pain to get off, the rear mounting bolt is the worst, need a couple extensions, a swivel or two and some patience. Get a good penetrating lube before you attempt it. Its doable just takes some time

It isn't too difficult to do yourself. First things first, get it back home or to a shop where you can work on it. Then pull the air filter and associated piping off and check out the compressor wheel. It sounds like your compressor wheel has come into contact with your housing.

Seems very expensive for a refurb when brand-new turbos can be had for about that same amount.
