    Trim : SRI

    Engine : CDTI 150 (Z19 DTH)

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 100k

    Default Turbo intake pipe

    So - doing a turbo change for someone on here (yeah ok thats ruined my other thread - LOL)...

    Looked at the air intake to the turbo and it was all nice and tight BUT saw this (pics below - once removed)...

    Now - it wasnt leaking air - and a rubber sleave does sit in it - but I am not sure this should be re-fitted due to the fact that I know its broken!.
    @nutron - have you seen these break like this on the car? and have you fitted one back like this?

    I just dont want to re-assemble for it to now leak and have to strip down again - but I know they are not cheap!

    Thoughts

    Pic showing break with the sleave in place so how it would sit on the turbo intake:

    Pic showing how the sleave sits insite it...

    Note of course that a jubilee clip goes round this securing it to the turbo...

    Thoughts?

    I've just been having another look at it. where the jubilee clip goes, the plastic isnt complete anyway as it has the slits so it can close on the sleave.

    So - I think if I use a new jubilee clip which is slightly wider whcih I will anyway - I am sure this will seal.

    As above, might be worth while holding of refitting until replaced in case it cracks a bit off and flies into the engine

    If they haven't and the car is needed.

    do a temporary repair with some 2 pack glue. Any of the squaddie mechanics out their will be familiar with but of battle damage repair lol
    build it into hole carefully and should set solid enough to camp tight against until the pipe arrives.

    as I have a feeling it'll be a 2 day order on it

    I was thinking that if I do use this that I can glue the sleve in place with araldite. I honestly think it will seal fine. There is a lip on the sleve as you can see - and once clamped it should be fine.

    I suspect as you say - it will be a factory order.. Seen one on eBay 2nd hand for £50!!! JEEZ - how much will it be new!!

    My other thoughts too are that without stripping out the rad pack - or at least moving it forward - it will be VERY hard to change...

    They arent bad to remove, but are a f'n pain to get back onto the turbo as they are a tight fit.

    I've never seen one of those break but I have replaced mine with silicone pipes. I'd not put that back myself either, drawing in dirty air there would chew up the aluminium compressor rapidly.
