    Ford diesels always seem to have intercooler/hose problems. I don't think you should have any knock-on affects once the hose is fixed. Apart from whatever the dealer breaks, obviously!
    Ford dealers make VX dealers look good.....

    Would appear to be a design fault,the heat from the engine shortens it life span.They all go near one the securing clips.
    Apparently - yet to confirm this when the new ones fitted - the new pipe is a modifyed part incorperating metal.

    Making making vxl dealers look good....

    Think this will be 7th or 8th bit of warranty work in 18 months.Some stuff been done 3 times
