Default Bearing plate

I just disassembled my 16g and noticed a small scratch on the face of my bearing plate. Is this a nono or will it make no difference?

P.S.
I have a new-found hate for snap rings.

Use 90* needle nose pliers, big ones, for the large compressor snap ring. By bearing plate do you mean your thrust bearing?

i don't think so, its on this website, scroll down and you'll see "bearing plate" on the picture showing the assembly view of the turbo

that's nothing, it's just there to seal the intake side.

The easiest way is simply to click this button which is just above the text entry window. It will ask you for a URL, and you enter the full address of the picture, which in this case was:

http://s235.photobucket.com/albums/ee302/mazda_nissan/?action=view&current=16g.jpg

To do it the old-fashioned way, you use the [IMG] and [/IMG] tags to enclose the address, as follows:

[IMG]http://s235.photobucket.com/albums/ee302/mazda_nissan/?action=view&current=16g.jpg[/IMG]
