Recall dealing with turbo?

Upon getting my car in for the tire replacement, the service manager tells me that there is a recall that has recently come up. It involves (pardon my paraphrasing if I muck this up) replacing the fan in the turbo with one with a different number of blades. I gather it changes the amount of air moving through the system.

He said it would only take about 15 minutes - not considered major.

Does this ring a bell with anyone? I don't know that I'd seen it mentioned here.

Thanks!

I haven't received any notice for recall dealing with the turbo. I did get the one about the EGR, I think it was, a few months ago.

Compressor or turbine wheel on the turbo would surely take more than 15 minutes to change out!

The entry from the service record is:

Replaced SCR Mixer with Update per SIB 18 06 12

Perhaps that can be decoded by someone?

I shall decode for you:

"Your service manager is an idiot."

This is nothing to do with the turbo.
