    Default CDTi top boost hose close to bolt

    Is there anyway I can move this hose away from the bolt as its just started to wear into the hose.

    How does everyone elses fit?

    I'd be tempted to undo the left hand jubilee, pull the hose towards the front of the car, then tighten the jubilee.

    Its clamped to a alloy pipe so I am not sure if it would move or not.

    When I get more time (Not driving the car at the moment) I will try and undo the right one and see if it will twist away from the bolt.

    Interesting place for a bolt im pretty sure someo people on here have had to replace that pipe and can only get it in the 3 sections from vaux .... think ill check mine later and put some insulation tape ove the head of the bolt or something similair

    Simple!, Loosen the lower jubilee clip, Twist the hose away from the bolt, Hold in place whilst Re- Tightening the lower clip!, common (another vx crap design)..

    The bit its bolted to is welded to the pipe so wont bend.

    Loosening the bottom clip is what I was going to go for.

    Loosened both clips off, pushed the hose 'down' and twisted it away and it now sits about a cm away so all sorted
